In Cynthia Peter Etc., et al. v. North Bethesda United Methodist Church, No.: 0455, September Term 2014, the appellate court affirmed the jury’s special verdict that there was no evidence that the church was responsible for the death of a congregant who died on church property. Brian and firm associate Ryan Mitchell handled the appeal.
