An Oregon couple is taking legal action against the city of Portland, a law enforcement officer and his spouse for $1.7 million, declaring an authorities dog bit them while off leash in 2021, triggering leak injuries so deep that muscle and bone showed up.

Jason and Kristina Norris – who reside in Happy Valley, where the event took place – submitted the neglect problem in Multnomah County circuit court March 9, asking for a jury trial.

In the fit, the Norrises state they were walking on a paved path near Southeast Carmichael Court and Ridgecrest Road on March 12, 2021, when a released German Shepherd approached them.

The dog lunged at Kristina Norris unprovoked, they said, sinking its teeth into her left lower arm and dragging her to the ground. As Jason Norris attempted to launch the dog’s “powerful grip” from his spouse’s bleeding arm, the dog bit his left hand, according to the claim.

The dog then bit Jason Norris’s right lower leg and whipped him for numerous minutes while the couple yelled for help. People close-by heard their calls and called 911, the fit said.

Kristina and Jason Norris were bleeding greatly when an ambulance got here, and later on, Portland policeman Jeffrey Dorn, who said the dog belonged to the Portland Police Canine Unit and under his care.

The couple declares that Jeffrey Dorn and his spouse Sarah Dorn were irresponsible in their care of the authorities dog and stopped working to preserve sufficient fencing around their Happy Valley property in the 14000 block of Southeast Shasta Lane, producing “an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm to pedestrians in their neighborhood.”

Jason and Kristina Norris are each requesting for $850,000 in damages from the attack.

The city lawyer’s workplace and the Portland Police Bureau said they would not talk about open lawsuits.
