Reader question: I am in the second year of a disease study involving laboratory canines and I’m being sued. One dog took a dislike to a lab tech and nipped her several times. The last time it happened, the animal was so aggressive the tech required stitches. She contends that I was aware of the situation and should have made arrangements to excuse her from having any contact with this dog. Do I have any recourse? What can I do to prevent this in the future?
