Dog dodges death Lincoln, Neb. (AP)-The Nebraska Supreme Court has granted clemency to a death row inmate of the four-legged variety-a dog condemned for fighting with a neighbor’s pet. The dog, Murphy, has been marked for death since 2001, when Lancaster County Judge Laurie Yardley ordered the female Alaskan malamute-shepherd mix destroyed. That decision was later upheld by another judge and Murphy’s owners appealed to the state high court, saying it was a scuffle that had been blown out of proportion. And on Feb. 18-some 28 years later in dog years-the state high court agreed the fight was minor. No neighbor bond New York (AP)-An eye doctor has filed a $30 million lawsuit alleging that James Bond actor Sean Connery is a bully as a neighbor and acts as though he has a license to terrorize his family out of its historic landmarked home. “Notwithstanding the cinematic James Bond image of consummate finesse, the defendant Connery, in true Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde fashion, acts the part in real life of a bully who ignores norms of neighborliness and decency,” Dr. Burton Sultan’s court papers allege. Sultan said he, his wife and their daughters live on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in the lower four floors of a six-story Tudor town house, built in 1869, that they share with Connery and his wife, who live on the top two floors. The Connerys’ floors, which they own as a condominium, were bought in January 1998 by their son, who moved and let his parents move in. The Connerys began renovations in September 2001 and were still at it last month, subjecting Sultan and his family to constant noise, foul fumes, water leaks and a rat infestation, court papers said. Connery also harassed the Sultans “by playing loud music at all hours and stomping about,” court papers said. Connery’s lawyer, Robert P. Lynn Jr., didn’t return calls seeking comment.
