A federal judge ruled earlier this week in favor of the University of Nebraska-Kearney student whose therapy dog wasn't allowed to live with her.

The lawsuit said the University unlawfully told the student, Brittany Hamilton, she could not keep her dog in her university owned apartment. The dog is used to cope with anxiety and depression.

The university argued it's not subject to the Fair Housing Act because stud nets only live there temporarily.
