Lawsuit challenging pet-friendly store policy fails

As reported over at Law.com, a New York court has ruled that a pet store cannot be faulted for its policy allowing customers to bring their pets to the store. The suit was brought against the store and a customer whose dog bit a 5-year old girl. The judge granted summary judgment in favor of both defendants, noting at one point in the order that the store's policy to allow pets was an industry-wide standard designed for the befit of the store's patrons.
The four-page order is available here.
