Tort mavens rejoice! Maryland decided not to judicially abrogate contributory negligence (h/t Josh Blackman). This makes sense both as a matter of judicial decison-making (leaving it to the legislature) and actual substantive policy (contributory negligence induces more care on all parties including the victim).
But the dissenting judge didn't see it that way, and instead of arguing the merits decided to get clever with allusions to dinosaurs. Josh Blackman retorts.
