Judge dismisses suit filed by businesses after 2015 Baltimore riot
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A federal judge has issued a ruling in a lawsuit filed by businesses damaged during the Baltimore riot nearly three years ago.
Judge George Russell dismissed the more than 250 counts against the city and state of Maryland.
He has also ordered the city to respond to the remaining claims within 14 days.
The businesses filed suit claiming the city had warnings of the possibility of civil unrest and didn't do enough to protect them.
