Prince George's County Posts A Lie on the County Web Site,
Invites the Press To Be Complicit
Upper Marlboro, MD. On January 3, 2012, Circuit Court Judge Sherrie M. Krauser signed a Declaratory Judgment and Order overruling the county's decades-long practice of attributing ownership to people who feed outdoor animals.
Daring the court to hold the County in contempt, Prince George's County published a Press Release today, stating that the judge had ruled that the case was moot.
The Declaratory Judgment prohibited the County from infringing on individual rights and liberties. The ruling was hard-won because the County fought this seeming uncontroversial issue for 2 1/2 years. Rather than appealing the ruling, the County has chosen to lie about it -- on the County's Official Website.
"By posting the false information on the County's official website as a Press Release, the county is not only in violation of the court's order, but is also inviting the Press to perpetuate the lie", said Timothy W. Saffell, President of Prince Georges Feral Friends, SPCA.
