Commissioner: Dog had no intrinsic value to its owners (access required)

A Jack Russell terrier that died due to the negligence of the N.C. State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital had no intrinsic value to its devoted owners, a deputy commissioner for the N.C. Industrial Commission has ruled. Deputy Commissioner George T. Glenn II awarded only the $2,755 in veterinary bills that were presented to the couple after their 12-year-old dog died in the intensive-care unit of the hospital, saying that the plaintiffs had failed to prove by the greater weight of the evidence that the dog had any intrinsic value.
