Avila said she was taking out the trash when the dog came out of nowhere and started ripping chunks of her skin out. The housekeeper submitted injury photos in court to back up her claims.

In the suit, she claimed Brown had his team remove the dog from the property before officials arrived. Avila claimed to have learned Hades was later euthanized after he showed “extreme aggression even when in the pound.”

The lawsuit demanded $70 million in damages.

Brown denied all allegations of wrongdoing. He accused the housekeeper of provoking the animal and causing her own injuries.

In recent docs, Avila claimed Brown knew the dog was violent and did nothing to protect houseguests.

Avila said that Brown’s dog “had mauled, bitten, and attacked others on two or more separate occasions prior to its mauling, biting, and attack on [Avila].”

A judge has yet to rule on the request to postpone the trial.
