Associated Press News Release

LUTZ, Fla. (AP) -- A blind resident at a Pasco County nudist community has sued the resort association, saying that she's been harassed because her service dog exceeds the community's weight limits.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1fs0yse) reports that Paradise Lakes Resort resident Sharon Fowler has a black Labrador named Laura who weighs well over the community's threshold. Fowler says the dog is a service animal.

Fowler says the association has told her to only walk the dog in specific areas and that the dog must move out of the way of pedestrians. Also, she's been told her dog is out of control.

Fowler filed a civil rights lawsuit in Pasco court. The suit seeks monetary damages for mental anguish and injunctive relief.
