Victory For Groucho!

Posted by Matthew Liebman, ALDF Staff Attorney on May 18, 2009

Great news! The Johnston County District Court has agreed with ALDF that Joel Simpson should bear the burden of paying for the veterinary care and upkeep of Groucho, the stallion he neglected. At a hearing today, the court granted the Equine Rescue League’s petition and ordered Simpson to pay $1,831, which reflects the cost of nursing Groucho back to health. ALDF will continue to fight for permanent custody of Groucho.
