Cock wins court case as judge directs it to crow as loud as it can

A court in Rochefort, western France has underscored the fact that nobody has an absolute right as its recent ruling in favour of a cock has gone viral, gaining global traction.

Some neighbours of one Corinne Fesseau had filed a lawsuit against her cock named Maurice in July, complaining about the bird’s unending loud crowing, saying it was giving them inconvenience.

The relief the group of neighbours were seeking through their lawyer Vincent Huberdeau was for Corinne Fesseau to either vacate the area or silence her cock for them to have peace of mind.

However, her lawyer Julien Papineau defended Maurice’s God-given right to crow, and the court agreed with the defense.

According to the defendant, no other residents complained about Maurice’s crowing except for a couple of retired summer vacationers.

Reports say a Judge on Thursday rejected the complainants’ relief which means that the cock can feel free and crow as loud as it pleases.

Julien Papineau is reported as saying the complainants must pay €1,000 in damages to her client.

The landmark ruling spread so fast due to its uniqueness, with 140,000 people signing a “Save Maurice” petition or proudly displaying his picture on “Let Me Sing”.
