Md. Judge Dismisses Paramedic’s Suit Against Town
BERLIN, Md. (AP) — A judge has dismissed a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by a former paramedic on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Norris Phillip Donohoe Jr. alleged in his lawsuit that he was wrongfully fired from his job as an emergency medical services supervisor in Berlin.
He was fired after the town received complaints of harassment within the department, but Donohoe says he’d never been the target of infractions or disciplinary complaints in his 23 years with the fire company.
The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that Worcester County Circuit Court Judge David B. Mitchell dismissed the lawsuit, which was filed last July and later amended, on the basis of governmental and legislative immunity.
Donohoe’s lawyer says Donohoe plans to appeal and “will ultimately prevail.”
