Maryland police can retain and use a person’s legally obtained DNA to investigate unrelated criminal cases, the state’s highest court ruled Tuesday.
Good news for animal advocates and owners of pit bull type dogs. Maryland’s House of Delegates has voted to reverse a court ruling labeling those animals “inherently dangerous.”
The Maryland Senate has passed a version of the bill declaring pit bulls as an “inherently dangerous” breed. The new mandate makes all dog owners liable for attacks.
A key development in Maryland’s controversial pit bull ruling that would allow landlords to evict people who own that breed: the Attorney General’s Office says while the ruling is being appealed, landlords don’t have that right.
A major court decision could change the way police catch criminals in Maryland. It’s a ruling that’s sparking outrage among public safety officials.
