Longshoremen who went on strike last year at the port of Baltimore claim they are not liable for related losses sustained by their employers, in part because a coastwide labor contract banning such strikes does not apply to them. The claim was made in a federal court filing by Jennifer Stair, an attorney for the International Longshoremen's Association Local 333. The dockworkers union was sued last month by port employers for $3.86 million in damages — the amount arbitrator M. David Vaughn determined the employers lost during the union's three-day strike in October.

In the two years since the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled that pit bulls were inherently dangerous dogs, I developed a hobby: Pit Bull Google. It's a very edifying activity. Anyone with access to the Internet can do it. You click on Google News to get the search engine's most recent results. You enter the words "pit bull," and "attack" or "police. " (If you only enter "pit bull" you get the latest concert reviews for the rapper known as Pitbull.) Without fail, the search turns up a news story about a vicious dog attack somewhere in the U.S. within the last four to 48 hours.

The Senate on Friday unanimously approved a bill to hold dog owners liable if their pet bites someone, unless they can prove they did not know it could happen. The bill, which now goes to the House, would place a "rebuttable presumption" on pet owners that they knew or should have known their dog could bite. Owners could avoid liability if they can convince a jury their animal had never bitten anyone before or shown any other vicious tendencies. The measure seeks to deal with a 2012 ruling by the Court of Appeals finding pit bulls "inherently dangerous" and holding their owners to stricter liability than those with pets of other breeds.  The bill the Senate passed treats all breeds the same.  Its passage could end a two-year deadlock with the House of Delegates over the issue, as lawmakers differed over where to draw the line in placing responsibility for bites on pet owners and landlords.  The Senate previously had insisted on holding pet owners strictly liable for any bite, while the House had held out for something similar to what the Senate approved.

Last week, Ed DeChellis thought issues on defense had contributed to the Navy men's basketball team's three-game losing streak. Now the coach is worried about the other end of the floor. The Midshipmen struggled mightily on offense Tuesday night, scoring just 13 points on 5 of 30 shooting in the first half en route to a demoralizing 55-32 loss to Patriot League rival Boston University. Navy dropped to 6-8 overall and 1-2 in the conference and squandered a chance to build on the momentum of Sunday's 79-71 win over Lafayette on Sunday.

We have the first gaffe of the 2014 governor's race, and it's a doozy. The Washington Post reported Tuesday on a speech Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler gave to a roomful of volunteers for his nascent gubernatorial campaign in which he suggested that his chief rival for the Democratic nomination, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, was counting on his race, not his accomplishments, to win. Mr. Gansler goes on, according to an audio recording obtained by...

Ten-year-old Jazimen Warr had nestled on her sister's shoulder, the two children sleeping in the back of the family's Cherokee on the drive to a relative's home in Bowie....

The debate over gun violence has focused on restricting sales of military-style assault weapons, semiautomatic pistols and background checks. Where is the concern for the victims of shooting? The Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. " One bullet can rob a person of all these rights.

President Barack Obama, largely due to his upbringing and background, sincerely thinks he is leading this country in the right direction. However, hard facts powerfully indicate that he is leading us in the wrong direction. The Obama administration has spent more in four years than the sum of all the administrations since George Washington. A conservative estimate of the federal government's unfunded liabilities for the year ended in 2011 is $87 trillion. Just to avoid accumulating more debt, Washington would have to collect $8 trillion in tax revenue, not to pay off our national debt and have reserves against unfunded liabilities, but just to avoid accumulating more debt.

The personal injury lawyers' bar likes to try to divide the personal injury systems of the 50 United States into two different buckets — contributory negligence and comparative fault — and then make up hypothetical cases to try to portray Maryland's contributory negligence rule as unfair or antiquated. The fact is that in the 50 states, there are 50 different liability systems. The common-sense rule in Maryland is the contributory negligence rule: that if a person contributes to his or her injury, he or she cannot recover damages for that injury.

As a law professor, Donald Gifford surely knows that the courts don't legislate ("Court must fix unfair liability rule," Sept. 25). So why is he advocating for that? To expand the trial lawyers' business, that's why. A motorist who edges his vehicle around downed wires and is electrocuted deserves a Darwin Award, not money that drives up everyone else's utility costs. Sorry, Marylanders are not going to fall down and worship every stupid idea lawyers spout that benefits them instead of ordinary citizens.
