Linda Carter (not the famous actress) sued the State of Maryland after allegedly being electrocuted in the Baltimore City courthouse. Ms. Carter had a Medtronic neurostimulator implanted in the middle of her back to alleviate her back pain injuries. She claimed that courthouse metal detectors caused her to be electrocuted when she passed through them or they passed over her. She sued the State under a number of legal theories including, but limited to, ADA claims, civil rights claims and common law claims. Magistrate Judge Beth P. Gesner was clearly skeptical that Ms. Carter’s testimony was accurate and pointed out that it was inconsistent with a court house videotape. Judge Gesner granted a summary judgment Motion filed by the State for a number of different reasons. This effectively threw Ms. Carter out of court.
