Appealing a dangerous dog determination

Courtesy of the Florida Appellate Law Blog - Abstract Appeal, comes a description of this case recently decided in the Fifth District Court of Appeal. Although the facts are sparse as to why three dogs were deemed dangerous, there is a good explanation of how the case advanced up the appellate ladder... or at least how they should. In this case, the Fifth District held that the circuit court jumped the gun in issuing a writ of prohibition, where "no emergency exists, and Appellee may obtain complete relief in a plenary appeal."
