In an ongoing lawsuit in the Wake District Court, a family is being sued by a California-based animal rights establishment, a North Carolina State University veterinary professor, and the U.S. Equine Rescue League. The lawsuit is seeking to take away six of the Wake County family’s horses and prevent the family from owning horses or pets for the next ten years. The malnourished horses were discovered in a rented pasture in Wake County with a small pile of moldy hay as their only source of food. The horses have since been seized and are being nursed back to health. The Wake District Judge presiding over the case has ordered the family to pay over $8,000 for the animals’ care.
Wake County is served by two different trial courts. The Wake County Superior Court hears all minor criminal cases as well as civil cases that involve less than $10,000.
