921-01616 Diana Campbell v. Wheels Skating Center, Inc.


Joseph S. Mack, Esq. (443) 423-04640


Implied warranty of merchantability, expert witness testimony


The Honorable William V. Tucker Circuit Court for Howard County


This claim of breach of implied warranty of merchantability arises from when Appellant-plaintiff suffered a broken ankle when she fell while roller-skating at Appellee’s skating center. The question on appeal is whether expert testimony is required to establish breach where the wheel on a roller-skate “seized up suddenly and without warning under normal use without user error or other intervening force.”

Sandra Sneed, et al. v. Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation, et al.


Jonathan A. Azrael, Esq. (410) 821-68040 Negligence


The Honorable Michael R. Pearson Circuit Court for Prince George’s County


This case arises from an incident occurring on Super Bowl Sunday in 2008 at a Uno’s restaurant. Two groups of patrons got in a verbal altercation with one another, which eventually culminated into a physical brawl and a shooting. Before the fight, no Uno employees intervened to stop the escalating confrontation, even though the yelling went on for approximately 15 minutes, according to witness testimony. According to Uno policy, managers were required to diffuse any potential confrontation, and call 911 if that didn’t work. On appeal is whether there was sufficient evidence occurring immediately before the fight that made the imminent harm foreseeable, and whether Uno breached a duty by failing to take any action to stop the confrontation.

Mark E. Herman, Esq. (410) 837-21440


Local Government Tort Claims Act


The Honorable M. Brooke Murdock Circuit Court for Baltimore City


The question on appeal in this case is whether the notice requirement of the Local Government Tort Claims Act applies to constitutional claims, and whether allegations of malice bring a claim outside the notice requirements of the LGTCA.

Parveen Begum, et al. v. Vincent Venu Subramaniam


Justin M. Beall, Esq. (202) 659-55020 Boulevard Rule


The Honorable Nelson W. Rupp Circuit Court for Montgomery County


Appellant-plaintiff filed suit against tortfeasor driver, alleging the decedent’s death was caused by the negligence of the tortfeasor drive. At issue on appeal is whether the Boulevard Rule applies to the facts of this case and whether the application of the Boulevard Rule requires a finding of contributory negligence. Here, Appellant-plaintiff argues that the tort victim was exiting the intersection, and that he had already cleared the intersection when seen by the tortfeasor drive, and that therefore the Boulevard Rule does not apply.
