ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A Maryland assistant attorney general says a court ruling that pit bulls are "inherently dangerous" is not yet in effect, pending a decision by the state's highest court on a request that it reconsider the decision.
Kathryn Rowe, an assistant attorney general, wrote the opinion Tuesday at the request of Delegate Heather Mizeur, D-Montgomery.
Rowe writes that the attorney general's office believes the decision is not currently in effect, because of the motion for reconsideration.
The ruling by the state's highest court means pit bull owners could be liable for bites without previous evidence of a dog being dangerous.
A task force of Maryland lawmakers is examining ways to change the law to address concerns raised by the court ruling.
