LATEST: Comedian Dane Cook has been evicted from his Los Angeles apartment after he lost his appeal against a lawsuit from his landlord.
The Good Luck Chuck star was hit with legal action alleging he allowed his pet dog to defecate on the land surrounding his West Hollywood home.
The lawsuit, filed in April (08), claimed the funnyman had ignored three warnings from the building's owner about his chihuahua's dog pooh.
Cook returned to court last week (beg15Sep08) to appeal the case, after he was slapped with an eviction notice by the Los Angeles sheriff's department.
In his defence, Cook claimed eviction would cause him "emotional hardship".
But the unnamed landlord has won the dispute, citing a swarm of complaints from neighbours that the dog, named Beast, is leaving his mess in the common areas of the apartment block.
According to the New York Post, Cook has just purchased a $7 million (GBP3.8million) home in the Hollywood Hills to move into.
