Judge Tosses O’Malley Admin State Center Countersuit
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Althea Handy tossed out the O’Malley administration’s countersuit against downtown business owners opposed to the State Center boondoggle project.
This clears the way for State Center opponents to proceed with their lawsuit claiming the O’Malley administration violated procurement laws in selecting the well connected developers for the project.
Attorney for State Center opponents Alan Rifkin called Judge Handy’s decision “entirely consistent with the First Amendment right to petition government with out fear or threat of retribution.”
