GOODELL DEVRIES TAKES SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN LEAD PAINT CASE
Richard L. Nilsson won a summary judgment for a property owner in a lead paint case in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City.
The now adult plaintiff claimed brain damage as a result of lead exposure during residence at the owner's property when a toddler.
Plaintiff had no direct evidence of the presence of any lead based paint at the property, but attempted to prove through expert causation testimony that the property had been a contributing source of his elevated blood lead levels.
After submission of memoranda and oral argument, the Court ruled that the expert's opinion was too speculative.
