A man is suing over claims he was bitten by a dog on North Linder Avenue.

Bruce Marcus filed a lawsuit Feb. 14 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Elsa Morales, citing the Animal Control Act and negligence.

According to the complaint, on Aug. 16, Marcus was walking past the fence containing Morales's dog on North Linder Avenue when the dog attacked Marcus without provocation.
