Spokane Valley's Horse In Pool Story Featured On Judge Judy

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, NY -

It was in December of 2012 when Debbie Adent had a few big problems at her home in Spokane Valley. Severe winds took down her fence and when the fence went down the neighbor’s horse came over and broke her pool cover.

Following the incident the Adent’s thought that the neighbor should pay for the ripped pool cover and they sued. It took more than a year for the case to make it to the courtroom, but on Tuesday their story aired nationally on Judge Judy.

“The reason your swimming pool was damaged is because your fence fell down,” Judge Judy said.

Judy felt that the couples fence was inadequate since others in the neighborhood did not experience a broken fence following the wind storm.

“I’ve explained myself to you sixteen ways from Sunday. You may not like the result, but I don’t find him responsible for your downed fence,” Judge Judy said. “That’s the primary reason that that horse ended got out and caused damage to your swimming pool.”

“This was an act of god for which you do not get compensated. Goodbye.”
