Court Dismisses Case Against Firm Client
On May 10, the Circuit Court for Prince George's County granted a motion to dismiss a negligent hiring lawsuit against the firm's client. The plaintiff alleged that the client, a licensed residential services agency, failed to properly vet a home healthcare aide who conspired with the plaintiff's former spouse to injure the plaintiff. Michael Levin handled the case for the firm and filed a concise 5 page brief arguing that the Complaint should be dismissed because: (1) It was untimely under Maryland's 3-year statute of limitations; and (2) The plaintiff failed to allege sufficient facts that, even if true, stated a legal claim for negligent hiring under controlling decisions of the Supreme Court of Maryland. The Court dismissed the case with prejudice, which means that the plaintiff cannot amend or refile the case.
