Johnnie Cochran Jr. is arguing a barking dog complaint.
Cochran, who gained renown as a member of O.J. Simpson's defense team, flew in from the West Coast to defend the mother of pro basketball star Ray Allen.Neighbors in West Hartford, Conn., have complained that Flora Allen's two Rottweilers, Sampson and Sheba, have been bothering them with their nighttime barking. The dogs were a gift from Allen, who plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. He also stars in the new Spike Lee movie "He's Got Game."
Cochran, who is a friend of the family, said Tuesday that he has hired a company to determine how much noise the dogs make. In the meantime, a judge has ordered the dogs kept inside the house at night.
