Further, Article IV, § 18(a) of the Maryland Constitution provides: The Court of Appeals from time to time shall adopt rules and regulations concerning the practice and procedure in and the administration of the appellate courts and [...]

Are Maryland’s “Stay At Home” Orders Constitutional?

By |May 5th, 2020|Legal Matters|0 Comments

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many governors across the nation are signing executive orders regarding sheltering in place and staying at home – prohibiting large gatherings, public meetings, and requiring closings of non-essential businesses. When Governor Larry Hogan issued his Stay at Home Order on March 30, he said, “This is a deadly public health crisis—we are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay home, we are directing them to do so.
