Camden Police Department (CPD) and Kershaw County Animal Control (KCAC) officers learned Wednesday that a U.S. district court judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed last October by the owners of two German Shepherds. Camden residents Clifton W. Anderson and Richard Stoerkel, who live on Greene Street, filed the suit six months after CPD and KCAC officers removed their German Shepherds, Heidi and Odie, from the home. Anderson and Stoerkel accused the city, county and, individually, Kershaw County Special Services Director Peggy Spivey, KCAC Sgt. Bobbie Bullington and CPD Capt. Mike Stone (then a lieutenant) of unlawful search and seizure procedures; gross negligence and negligence per se; negligent supervision of employees, agents and contractors; trespassing; assault; battery; false imprisonment; and “conversion.”
