Cap Survives in Maryland – LOCKSHIN v SEMSKER decided


Well for all those who thought there might be a ‘crack’ in the cap law of Maryland – not going to happen.

Semsker.  The highest court in Maryland, the Court of Appeals, reversed the decision of the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, MD, which had ruled that in medical malpractice cases that were not the subject of arbitration, the cap on non-economic damages did not apply.  The Court of Appeals, in a foreseeably lengthy and detailed opinion, has held that this was not the correct statutory interpretation and that the cap did apply.
