Pit Bull Lawsuit In Maryland Expands

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The lawsuit over pit bull ownership in Maryland expands.

Three people are now suing to overturn the Appeals Court decision ruling pit bulls inherently dangerous.

The expanded suit also names Governor Martin O’Malley, Attorney General Doug Gansler, the Court of Appeals and Court of Appeals Chief Judge Robert M. Bell as defendants.

The plaintiffs are all residents of Armistead Gardens apartments in Baltimore, who say they’ll be forced to give up their dogs if the decision stands. They say the original ruling is unconstitutional.
