Sioux City sued over ordinance banning pit bulls

(AP) -

Two people have sued Sioux City over its ordinance banning pit bulls.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Sioux City. In it, Jennifer Frost and a woman referred to as Jane Doe ask the court to bar the city from enforcing the ordinance and to outlaw it as a violation of their constitutional right to due process.

The lawsuit says the ordinance, passed in 2008, is inconsistent and bans animals that are not harmful.

The ban prohibits residents from having dogs that are at least 51 percent pit bull.

City officials declined to comment about the lawsuit.
