Today in Franklin County Municipal Court, the Pre-Trial hearing in the case of Piper, the Ch Shetland Sheepdog (released to Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue/Penny Sanderbeck) again in the middle of a legal storm, has been continued until Dec. 11, 2014.

In a statement released by Veronica Covatch and Michele Wilson (the Plaintiffs):

We want to thank Mr Cohen for his efforts on behalf of Michelle and myself to reach a reasonable resolution in this matter.  Unfortunately the offer of settlement was not accepted by the defendants by the pretrial conference date.

We are now in the process of retaining experienced trial counsel who will be able to move forward to the next stage of this case. We will not stop until we Bring Piper Home.
