Civil litigation — Amended complaint — Wrongful discharge
This case concerns the discharge of an at-will employee, allegedly because she did not appear for work timely on December 24, 2014, but instead attended a final peace order hearing as a respondent pursuant to § 3-1505 of the Maryland Code’s Courts & Judicial Proceedings Article in the District Court of Maryland sitting in Baltimore County. This appeal arises from the judgment of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, which granted the motion of appellee, LMB Unlimited, LLC, d/b/a Konstant Food, to dismiss the amended complaint of appellant Crystal Butterworth alleging a civil cause of action for wrongful discharge.
Appellant presents two questions for our review:
“(1) Did the circuit court err in dismissing [appellant’s] amended complaint for wrongful discharge?
(2) Did the circuit court err by engaging in improper fact-finding in resolving a motion to dismiss?”
