PHILLIP S. BAILEY V. LANCE LLOYD, ET AL.

Civil litigation — Filing of complaint — Statute of limitations

Appellant Phillip S. Bailey, an inmate at Eastern Correctional Institution, filed suit in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County against Sergeant Lance Lloyd of the Maryland State Police and the “Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force.” Although Bailey did not formally name the Maryland State Police as a party, he complained about its conduct and arguably sought relief from it.

The court dismissed the complaint on the ground that it was filed beyond the applicable three-year statute of limitations. Bailey appealed.
