Nemo, San Francisco Unified Family Court comfort dog.

San Francisco has a new judicial appointment. He doesn’t have a J.D. or know the law very well, although he can sit, lie down and high-five on command. The S.F. Unified Family Court, in a historic first, added a comfort dog to its roster. In a swearing-in ceremony by Judge Nancy Davis, Nemo was welcomed by the court through a partnership with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). The black Labrador will be on duty to help provide comfort to children and families while in court.
