Mr. Clucky, a Miami Beach rooster and his poultry guardian, Mark Buckley, are caught in a fowl-smelling court battle. You see, this is no ordinary matter: it's a 'chick-evict' case.
Legal feathers are flying in this code enforcement fight brought by the City of Miami Beach. The City wants Mr. Clucky out of Buckley's residential apartment, charging that he violates a city ordinance that prohibits poultry . Yesterday's proceeding ended in a dispute over witness testimony -- or rather the lack of it. Mr. Clucky didn't even get to testify in his own defense, and Buckley is crying foul.
