Today, there was a hearing in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City regarding 12 Complaints to Show Cause that were filed by SBWLAW on behalf of 17 officers who had administrative disciplinary charges filed in excess of the 1 years statute of limitations under the LEOBR.
After a very well presented argument by Adam Davey from SBWLAW, the Honorable Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill ruled in favor of the officers and dismissed all 12 of the administrative disciplinary cases against the 17 officers. The Department does have the right to appeal the decisions.
At this time, there are additional administrative disciplinary cases pending that involve the same issue statute of limitations issue that were not heard in Court today. We will wait for a decision by the BPD as to the status of those cases.
