Mark DelCore, the plaintiff who filed a case demanding accommodations for his stress-caused injury, tells reporters why he may not continue the lawsuit. Note: it's the man who claims a right to sunbathe nude with his dog.
"I have to decide whether the amount of energy I am spending on this makes it worthwhile."
Do people who bring frivolous lawsuits ever think about whether their consumption of public resources is worthwhile?
The dog -- whose name is Cheekies -- was not brought to court. Presumably, DelCore knew enough not to press his luck by toting Cheekies to court. But the judge must nevertheless realize that if emotional support pets are covered by policy that applies to trained service animals like Seeing Eye dogs, many stressed out witnesses and parties and perhaps even lawyers will be stroking ragged lapdogs in the courtroom.
Well, so, anyway... DelCore is stressed out about the lawsuit, perhaps because the news reports are subjecting him to ridicule. What did he expect? Perhaps, this is what he wanted. He is a bodybuilder. He could be a publicity hound. Or just a publicity rat terrier.
