ORDER OF PROTECTION MAY INCLUDE ANIMALS

17June
2010

Are we going to be allowing the family dogs into the courtroom in domestic violence cases? Maybe not literally, but is a Petition to Amend Rule 6 of the Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure that would grant a Plaintiff exclusive “custody” of any animal possessed by the parties and forbids the defendant to come near the animal for the duration of the Order of Protection. The background and purpose of the rule is for the protection of animals, and is requested to become public on July 29, 2010, with a proposed post-petition public comment period.
