Criminal Law


747-1426 Earl R. Diggs v. State Highway Administration


Robert G. Blackford, Esquire (301) 670-0300 State Employment


Te Honorable Julie S. Solt Circuit Court for Fredrick County


A Highway Administration employee was terminated as a result of engaging in fisticuffs in the workplace. Te employee claimed self defense, but the Administration maintained, and the Circuit Court held, that the “Workplace Violence Policy” at issue makes no provision for self defense. Until the Court of Special Appeals rules, it would appear that the policy is violated even if one is clearly acting in self defense.


749-01991 Guiseppina Muti v.


University of Maryland Medical Systems


Julia R. Arfaa, Esquire (410) 539-6633 Medical Negligence Te Honorable Evelyn O. Cannon Circuit Court for Baltimore City


In this medical negligence/wrongful death case, counsel for the plaintiff was unaware that the father of the deceased had another son by a prior marriage whom he had not seen in over thirty years. As a result, the estranged son was not named as a party in the lawsuit. When counsel discovered the oversight, counsel disclosed it and attempted to amend the complaint. Instead, the trial court granted the defendants’ motion to dismiss. Because the statute of limitations had run, the plaintiffs were unable to re-file. Te issue is whether the judge abused his discretion in failing to permit an amendment rather than dismissing the case.


748-01765 Dennis E. Fink v.


Maryland Correctional Institution


Jeffrey J. Utermohle, Esquire (410) 951-4795 Worker’s Compensation


Te Honorable M, Kenneth Long, Jr. Circuit Court for Washington County


Te issue is whether the contraction of MRSA pneumonia by a corrections officer was compensable where the corrections officer alleged that his occupational exposure to a chemical irritant called “OC Spray” “set the stage” for his contraction of the disease.
