Attorneys in Funk & Bolton’s Local Government Practice Group recently filed an amicus curiae brief in the Maryland Court of Appeals in the case of Espina, et al. v. Jackson, et al. on behalf of the Local Government Insurance Trust, and the counties of Harford and Montgomery. The petitioners in this case challenge the applicability of the Local Government Tort Claims Act (LGTCA) to claims brought against local government alleging violations of the State constitution. The amici argue that the provisions of the LGTCA do apply to such claims and it is in the public interest to recognize that the General Assembly intended that the liability of local governments be limited.
