More on the sentimental value of pets

Last week I posted a note linking to older posts on whether courts should recognize emotional damages in cases claiming the loss of a pet (here).  The links were to posts on a few cases that have decided the issue, some in favor of recognizing the claim and some denying it.  One of the recent cases denying the claim came out of New Jersey.  Friend of the blog Prof. George Conk then sent me a link to his comment on this case which is available here.  I had missed it when he posted it originally.  Sorry about that, George!  And thanks for the link.
