Food Liability Litigation

  • Defended a Baltimore restaurant in litigation arising out of a customer, diagnosed with typhoid fever, who claimed to have contracted the disease as a result of eating in our client's establishment. Despite the fact that subsequent testing revealed that a worker in the restaurant was an unknowing and asymptomatic carrier of the disease, that same testing established that the plaintiff's disease pattern differed significantly from that of the food service worker. The case was tried before a Baltimore City jury which returned a defense verdict resulting in the complete exoneration of the restaurant, and the verdict was upheld on appeal.
  • Defended a Baltimore restaurant in litigation arising out of a customer’s allegation that she sustained damages from salmonella poisoning after consuming a meal. Case settled for nuisance value after fact and expert discovery.


  • Representation of Appellee in an insurance coverage dispute. Court of Appeals affirmed both the trial court and the Court of Special Appeals in finding that there was no duty to defend the Insured because there was no potentiality of coverage for the intentional acts asserted in the underlying case.
  • Representation of an Appellee in an insurance coverage dispute. This opinion serves as the seminal case in Maryland regarding whether a Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy will cover an Insured for damages arising out of defective workmanship. The Court of Special Appeals, in affirming the rulings below, held that the costs to repair defective work itself, as opposed to unexpected personal injury or property damage, are not covered.
  • Representation of Appellant in a defamation case involving the applicability of Absolute Privilege in the context of an administrative proceeding. Court ruled on the certified question favorable to our client and remanded the case back to the 4th Circuit for further proceedings.
  • Representation of the Guaranty Fund in an insurance coverage dispute wherein the Maryland Court of Special Appeals affirmed the trial court's ruling that attorney fees incurred by defense counsel in an underlying lawsuit are not "covered claims" under the Guaranty Fund statute and thus are not the responsibility of the Guaranty Fund.
  • Representation of a restaurant in an appeal by the plaintiff subsequent to a defense verdict in an alleged food liability case tried before a jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. Appeal focused on certain evidentiary issues, specifically the "Public Records" exception set forth in Maryland Evidence Rule 5-803(b)(8). Court of Special Appeals affirmed the ruling below in finding that the trial court correctly excluded from jury consideration various opinions and conclusions, as opposed to facts, contained in a report generated by The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
