Judge tosses 2 Colorado pit bull lawsuits

DENVER — Pit bull owners who use the animals as service dogs won’t be allowed to challenge pit bull bans in Denver and Aurora.

The Denver Post reports Saturday that a federal judge in Denver has thrown out lawsuits claiming the cities put illegal restrictions on pit bulls as service dogs (http://bit.ly/147RRw3 ).

Both cities ban pit bulls but allow them as service animals. Aurora maintains a policy that requires owners of pit bulls to follow more restrictions than service dogs of other breeds.

In Denver, law enforcement officers are essentially told to look the other way when they encounter the animals as service dogs.

U.S. District Court Judge Marcia Krieger ruled that Aurora and Denver had done enough to allow the pit bulls as service dogs.
