Student therapy dog can stay in sorority house amid dispute

🕐 1 min read

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A university student’s therapy dog has been allowed to stay in an Ohio sorority house until the courts sort out whether it needs to move because of another student’s allergies.

A federal judge’s ruling issued Friday blocks Ohio State University from ordering the dog out of the Chi Omega sorority house.

At issue are the health concerns of two students who live at the house. The dog is trained to help Madeleine Entine during her panic attacks. But another resident has complained the dog inflames her allergies and her Crohn’s disease.

The judge’s preliminary injunction allowing the dog to stay says an Ohio State official didn’t determine if it was the dog that had aggravated the student’s allergies.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the injunction will remain until the case goes to trial.
