Louisville woman goes to court over car damages from hitting dog

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A judge heard the case Thursday of a woman who hit a dog and is suing the dog's owner for damage to the car.

Maggie Casarro is suing the dog's owner, Ken Herrington, for $900 in damages to cover the repairs.

Herrington's German Sheppard was hit and killed by Casarro back in October 2015 on Blankenbaker Lane near the Historic Locust Grove home.

Before the trial started, Casarro and Herrington had a conversation outside the courtroom. Each side came away with a different perspective of what was said.

"Mr. Herrington did not want to see what information I had to share with the court today," Casarro said. "And he threatened me that after tonight, he was going to make sure that I was slandered all over social media." 

"I'll make this very clear, I never threatened this lady," Herrington said. "And I never mentioned social media that would be threatening to her in any manner."

The judge said she needs more time to look over all the documents each side presented. 

At one point, Casarro addressed the judge and said, "I did not hit that dog. That dog hit the car I was driving." 

WDRB asked Herrington his thoughts on the court hearing.

"Well first, I don't want to be personal, but I'm really somewhat offended and disappointed in some of the comments the plaintiff made." 

The judge says she will mail the verdict to both sides, but no timeline was given on that.
