While several members are pushing for legislation to protect dog owners, Mr. Frosh - who co-chairs the panel - said he thinks the court’s ruling was “well-reasoned” and that he doesn’t see a pressing need for the assembly to intervene.
He said that while Maryland law - referred to by many as the “one-bite law” - holds owners responsible starting with the dog’s second violent incident, most other states already hold owners liable starting with the dog’s first attack.
“We’ll take a look at it,” he said. “We’ll at least be more well-informed before we go into special session, if we do.”
