Case Summary

In 2022, Patricia McLamb began remodeling her home in Mt. Rainier, Maryland with the goal of making the household more accomodating for her wheelchair-bound daughter. Despite possessing all the necessary permits to perform the construction and demolition work on the residence, Ms. McLamb was subjected to baseless stop work orders and other unjust administrative actions taken by code enforcement officials with The City of Mt. Rainier and Prince George's County Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE). The eggregious and discriminatory actions taken by the code enforcement officials ultimately led to the complete destruction of Ms. McLamb's home and caused her to suffer substantial damages in excess of $700,000.

Recent Case Update(s)

Prince George's County and DPIE defendants filed their answer to the Complaint on January 18, 2023. On February 12, 2024, the City of Mt. Rainier defendants moved to dismiss the Complaint, which we opposed.

We've been waiting on a ruling on the motion to dismiss since March 26, 2024. The case cannot proceed until the Court issues a ruling on the motion.
