AGAWAM, Mass. (AP) - An Agawam couple in a long-running dispute with the town over goats they keep on their property has filed a $2 million lawsuit.
Alan and Suzanne Griffin say in the lawsuit filed last week in U.S. District Court in Springfield that the town is violating their civil rights and discriminating against them. They are asking for $2 million in damages including compensation for mental anguish and emotional problems caused by the town.
The Griffins are also asking a judge to block the town's move to enter their property and remove the goats.
