145 Million At Stake in Frederick County, Maryland, Wrongful Death Suit

Here is a link to an opinion in which United States District Judge Quarles, of Maryland's US District Court, discusses breach, and in particular the concepts of gross negligence and malfeasance in a contract context. If past is prologue, the opinion could shed light into what could happen in a case pending before the same Judge Quarles. I am still waiting for this opinion to appear on the Court's website.

Judge Quarles penned an opinion reinstating the County and Sheriff's office as defendants being sued along with a deputy for the death by taser of a Frederick County youth.

Jarrel Gray, 20, of Frederick, died Nov. 18, 2007, hours after being shocked twice by a Taser operated by Cpl. Rudy Torres.

Here is a link to the article in the Frederick News Post about it.
