    Attorney sues family who's dog bit him on the nipple...claims loss of sex desire

    A Fort Lauderdale attorney has sued a Boca Raton family for $1 million after he said their dog bit his left nipple.

    According to the suit, William R. Cohen needs the money to pay for medical treatment, loss of income and for general damages for pain, suffering, physical disfigurement and "loss of sexual comfort and desire."

    Cohen, reached at his office Friday at the insurance defense and commercial litigation firm of Bohdan Neswiacheny, declined to comment.

    The suit, filed Monday, claims that Steven Bushouse, his wife, Michelle, and father, James, are responsible for the March 31 bite at Mizner Bark, Boca Raton's dog park.

    But according to the Bushouses, Cohen was at fault for grabbing their Jack Russell terrier during a doggie scuffle.

    Taz, the 2-year-old terrier, was playing and running around during his first outing to the dog park at Military and Banyan trails, Steven Bushouse, 29, said.

    "He's a typical terrier. They tend to be active and can be territorial, but that's normal," Michelle Bushouse, 28, said of her adopted pooch.

    At some point that morning, Taz and some other dogs got into a tiff, which was quickly broken up. After a while the dogs got into it again.

    "Then William Cohen decided to pick up my dog, and he in turn got bit on the nipple," Steven Bushouse said. "He was kind of like: `Ow. That kind of hurt.'"

    The Bushouses said they didn't see blood on Cohen's shirt and he didn't appear to be seriously hurt. They assured Cohen their dog was vaccinated and exchanged their information to fax him a copy of Taz's records.

    "I got his business card, and that's when I saw he was a lawyer," Steven Bushouse said.

    The lawsuit claims Taz bit Cohen without warning and that the dog had a habit of "viciously biting humans." But Michelle Bushouse said Cohen grabbed her dog unexpectedly. Taz hasn't bitten anyone before or since, said Bushouse, who adopted the dog a week before he bit Cohen.

    "We like him. He's good," Michelle Bushouse said. "He's not a danger."

    I have one that he can grab...





    He'll lose a little more than just 'sexual desire', I'm afraid, though.

    A lawyer without sexual desire is a lawyer that won't be reproducing. I think the dog and the owner deserve a reward.

    Can the couple countersue because the ambulance chaser is a dumbass? I mean, really. You don't pick up a pissed off dog, and you REALLY don't pick up a pissed off dog that isn't yours. I'd have bit the damn lawyer, too.
