Stephen Amell Goes Wild In Court After Losing Against Animal Rescue

Page Six reported that Arrow star Stephen Amell went wild in court after losing a battle in his lawsuit against an animal rescue group. Court documents obtained from Page Six resources said that Amell requested a Los Angeles court shut down Rescues Rock and force it to move from its Laurel Canyon location, but a judge ruled that Amell and his wife, Cassandra Jean, were not likely to prevail at a trial and even went so far as to say the public would “suffer greater harm” if the rescue had been moved.

Sources from the rescue group informed that the actor yelled at the judge for ruling against him. Similarly, attorney Jeremy Osher said, “This is now the second time in the span of two months that the Amells unsuccessfully have sought a court order shutting down Rescues Rock.” The couple sued Rescues Rock in September, claiming defendants Kristen Stavola and Jeremy Gardiner were running a large illegal animal kennel operation on residential plots of land without a permit that prevented them from enjoying their personal property.
