April 26 A Maryland court ruled the Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes were Inherently Dangerous. Making anyone that rents to owners of this type of dog could be held liable for any damages the Dog may cause. This caused concern for many landlords who started evicting residents that owned a Pit Bull or /Mix and shelter to euthanize the breeds in order to not be liable for their actions.
On July 11th State Farm Insurance petitioned the courts to reconsider their decision. Because of this petiton they believe the evictions will halt as will the euthanasia at the shelters. This is a temporay fix until the court affirms its decision or Legeslators pass legislation.
