Carr Allison Successful in TN

Sean W. Martin and Derek W. Mullins successfully defended a campground owner in a dog bite case.  The plaintiffs were guests at a campground in upper east Tennessee.  The campground was dog friendly so long as the dog was on leash and under control at all times.  According to the plaintiffs, they were walking their dog, on leash, around the campground when it was attacked by a dog they described as a “pit bull” owned by another guest of the campground.  In attempting to separate the fighting dogs, a plaintiff was bitten.  The owner of the “pit bull” told a different tale.  He stated that the plaintiffs’ dog was off leash and attacked his dog.  The plaintiffs were  unable to prove that the owner of the campground had any knowledge that either dog was dangerous or had been aggressive in the past.  The campground owner moved for summary judgment and the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the case.
