Dogs


      A prisoner who alleged that he was bitten by a dog under the control of a correctional officer while in a California youth detention facility could file a late notice of claim against the defendant government entities and employees when the failure to do so was based on "excusable neglect," specifically a legal secretary's mistaken removal of the claim filing deadline from an office calendar. Renteria v. Juvenile Justice Dept. of Corrections, No. C049717, 37 Cal. Rptr. 3d 777 (Cal. App. 3d Dist. 2006). [N/R]
