Methadone clinic limits to go to trial

CRIME WATCH

Baltimore County: Courts

October 01, 2005|By LISA GOLDBERG

A federal district judge ruled yesterday that there are too many lingering questions about the motivation behind a Baltimore County law that limits the location of methadone clinics to determine without trial whether the county or the operator of one such clinic should prevail in a three-year-old lawsuit. Judge Catherine C. Blake denied motions by the county and A Helping Hand LLC for summary judgment in a suit in which the Pikesville clinic alleges that the county's zoning law is discriminatory.

Blake's order does not set a trial date.
