The UCLA Animal Law Program is pleased to announce its next event: Animal Shelter Litigation, which will feature presentations by two prominent attorneys who have achieved significant victories in animal shelter litigation matters:
Mr. Eisenberg is a partner at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP in its commercial litigation department. He will be discussing his role in successfully suing the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care & Control to reinstate a volunteer rescuer whose right to “pull” animals from County shelters was revoked due to her criticism of the Department.
Mr. Wagman is a partner at Schiff Hardin LLP in its litigation department. He will be discussing his victories in shelter litigation in the broader context of companion animal problems, such as hoarding and the use of gas chambers at animal shelters. Mr. Wagman will also discuss his role in successfully suing the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care & Control for its failure to hold owner-surrendered animals for the legally mandated holding period.
