CNN: Woman sues over discrimination against service monkey

CNN reports about Debby Rose, who uses a service monkey to help with a panic disorder, and the letter the Springfield, Mo., health department sent out, telling businesses that serve food not to let her enter with her service monkey, Richard, because it violates health codes.

Richard is a certified service animal in the state of Missouri, and CNN reports that it says on her driver's license that the monkey must be with her when she drives.

Thanks to Ken for the tip.
