Her appeal of that order was dismissed by a panel of judges last month.

According to court documents, Cuthbert is claiming the defendants made public statements that "destroyed" her reputation and caused emotional distress.

Her examples include saying her property is "dirty and smelly", and that she was stealing and hoarding dogs.

Cuthbert also alleges harassment, destruction of property and trespassing.

$1M, and a public apology

She is suing for $500,000 for the "destruction of reputation, emotional distress and property damage which includes pain and suffering of the dogs."

She's also asking for $200,000 for the loss of business, $200,000 for the loss of property value after the permanent injunction was tied to her land, and an additional $100,000 for trespassing.

Finally, Cuthbert wants a public apology from the defendants.

Graham Lang, the lawyer for most of the defendants, called it a "frivolous, vexatious" lawsuit and says it's "obviously a reprisal," after Cuthbert lost her appeal.

Lang will be making an application in court on Thursday to have Cuthbert found in contempt of the original injunction. She has failed to surrender dogs each month, as ordered, and still has at least 43 dogs on her property.

If found in contempt, Cuthbert could be fined, imprisoned, or both.
