State News at a Glance: New Mexico man sues neighbor over dog

-A A +A
By Associated Press

A northern New Mexico man is suing his neighbors, contending their dog caused $2,000 in damages by tearing off part of the rear bumper of a Volvo parked in his yard.
An attorney for Richard Lienau of Pecos filed the lawsuit earlier this month in state District Court on behalf of Lienau and the owner of the Volvo, seeking damages and an injunction against Steve and Jerica Griego, the dog’s owners. Lienau describes the dog as weighing about 75 pounds, although he wasn’t certain of the breed.
He also contends it damaged another vehicle in the area, menaced neighbors and killed one neighbor’s dog. Christina Griego, Steve’s wife and Jerica’s mother, said she thinks Lienau is mistaken.
She said the family’s two dogs are small and not aggressive.
