Wow, that's awesome!

Resolution 100 endorses “breed-neutral dangerous dog/reckless owner laws that ensure due process protections for owners, encourage responsible pet ownership and focus on the behavior of both individual dog owner and dogs[.]“[iv]

Hear hear!!

'Course, just cuz the ABA endorsed the new policy doesn't mean any municipality will follow up on it. :( But at least it's out there now for municipalities that might be thinking of strengthening their problem animal legislation--and corporate counsels will have it there in front of them when the boards come asking for advice on the legalities.
