Talulah Jones' Robin Lohre wins $65K in maid-service lawsuit over dog's death

Last year, Robin Lohre, the woman behind the much-loved boutique Talulah Jones, shared the story of why she had decided to file a lawsuit against a company called Posh Maids after she and her daughter, Imogene, returned home following a housecleaning to find their beloved dog, Ruthie, dead under the dining room table. The case is now over, with a judgment in Lohre's favor of $65,000 -- perhaps the largest of its kind in state history, her attorney says.
