Ron Mason was never able to get a lawyer to do a lawsuit regarding defamation of character, libel, breach of civil liberties and violation of various legal protocols. Apparently what happened to Mason happens all the time and unless you have money, they will not take the case on a contingency basis.
However, Mason did lose 25-30 cats by being killed after seizure. He lost several carriers and humane traps, medications, etc., as well as lost time off work..
Therefore, with the help of a friend, he filed a Small Claims Court..
