Marc Anthony has been added to a lawsuit filed by a flight attendant who says Anthony and wife Jennifer Lopez’s German Shepherd Dog attacked her on a private jet bound for Los Angeles from New York, the New York Daily News reports.
Lopez had been the only person named in the federal personal-injury lawsuit filed by flight attendant Lisa Wilson. William Cafaro, who represents Wilson, says Anthony is being added after Lopez’s lawyer said Anthony is the owner of the dog named Floyd.
“I was told by her counsel that Marc Anthony was the registered owner of the dog,” Cafaro told the Daily News. “The issue of who actually owns the dog will be determined in the course of the proceedings.”
Wilson is seeking $5 million in damages for the July 3, 2006 incident. Court documents say Lopez warned Wilson, who works for NetJets Inc., how to behave around Floyd, who is a trained guard dog. An hour into the flight, Floyd lunged at Wilson, “attacking her and biting her pant leg,” according to the suit.
Cafaro says Wilson fell and seriously injured her back and has been unable to work.
