By Noddy A. Fernandez | May 26, 2017

EDWARDSVILLE — An East Alton woman is suing a pit bull owner, alleging that negligent supervision of her dog caused others to be injured.

Raye C. Moore filed a complaint on May 15 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Amy Jo McLaughlin, alleging the defendant failed to properly train her pet to avoid harming others.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 12, 2017, she was walking her Labrador on a leash in her front yard when she and her dog were attacked by a pit bull owned by the defendant. 

As a result, Moore claims she and her dog suffered physical injuries and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges McLaughlin failed to properly supervise her pet when outside and exposed to other animals, failed to properly train her dog to avoid harming other animals or individuals and failed to warn others about the dangers of owning a pit bull.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, plus costs of suit and any other further relief as the court deems just and proper. 

She is represented by Keith Short of Law Office of Keith Short PC in Collinsville.
