Appellant Stinyard Blue, an employee of Baltimore City, was injured by a fellow employee, appellee Antonio Arrington, while both men were acting within the scope of their Baltimore City employment. After receiving workers’ compensation for his injuries, Blue brought a negligence action against Arrington, in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, for the same injuries. Baltimore City, on Arrington’s behalf, filed, in response, a motion to dismiss, relying on a provision of the Local Government Tort Claims Act (“LGTCA”), which prohibits a local government employee from suing “a fellow employee for tortious acts or omissions committed within the scope of employment,” if the injury sustained by the local government employee is “compensable under the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Act.” Md. Code (1973, 2013 Repl. Vol.), § 5-302(c) of the Courts & Judicial Proceedings Article (“CJP”). The circuit court granted that motion to dismiss, prompting this appeal. Blue presents three questions for our consideration.
