'The ducks have won'!

The French court ruled few days ago that a flock of around 60 ducks and geese on a small farm can keep on quacking, rejecting a neighbor's complaint that the birds' racket was making their life a misery.

The court ruled that the noise from the flock kept by retired farmer, Dominique Douthe, in southwestern France, was within acceptable limits, broadcaster France 3 said.

"The ducks have won," Douthe told Reuters after the court decision. "I'm very happy because I didn't want to slaughter my ducks."

The complaint was brought by Ms. Douthe's neighbor, who moved from the city around a year ago into a property about 50 meters away from the enclosure. The neighbor's lawyer claimed the noise exceeded permissible levels and prevented the neighbor from enjoying their garden or sleeping with their house windows open.

The dispute is the latest in a series of court cases that have seen rural French traditions, especially farmyard noises, challenged by new residents.

Stern Judge Judy Lets A Dog Decide Who The Rightful Owner Is And It's Too Cute!

There's no compression of the love there is between a loyal dog and his loving owner. As any pet parent will attest, their love is something that cannot be matched or explained. This was even more so true when Judge Judy decided to put it to the test.

Barrett Griner IV said he opened a jury summons addressed to "IV Griner," which is the name of his 5-year-old German Shepherd.
"It was just funny. I got mail for my dog. I hope that the judge finds it kind of humorous. That's all I need is to have the local county and judge think I'm making a mockery of his courtroom," said Griner.


Court officials in New Jersey's Cumberland County blame the mix up on a computer glitch. Mark Sprock, the local trial court administrator, said the court did not actually request that a dog serve on a jury. He said a computer probably misread Griner's numerical suffix IV as his first name.

"It probably picked up that IV, which is usually after his name, from one of the databases and put it into his first name slot in the jury system," Mr Sprock said.

At any rate, it sure would be funny if a dog were part of a jury. With our canine companions being so friendly, they would probably find all defendants innocent!
