DOUGLAS N. LASURE, ET UX. v. CAIN CONTRACTING, INC., ET AL.

This appeal arises out of two orders of the Circuit Court for Baltimore County granting appellees, Cain Contracting, Inc. (“CCI”), Andra Cain (“Cain”), and PNC Bank, N.A. (“PNC”), summary judgment against appellants, Douglas N. Lasure, Sr. and Dawn R. Lasure (collectively “the Lasures”). The Lasures contend that the circuit court erred in imposing discovery sanctions on them without first holding a hearing on their motion to enforce settlement agreement. The Lasures further maintain that the circuit court improperly granted summary judgment in favor of CCI and Cain, after previously denying the Lasures’ cross motion for summary judgment. Additionally, the Lasures argue that the circuit court improperly granted summary judgment in favor of PNC. On appeal, the Lasures present six issues for our review, which we have consolidated and rephrased as the following three issues:

1. Whether the circuit court erred in entering discovery sanctions against the Lasures without first holding a hearing regarding the existence of the alleged settlement agreement.

2. Whether the circuit court erred in granting CCI and Cain’s motion for summary judgment.

3. Whether the circuit court erred in granting PNC’s motion for summary judgment.
