No Judicial Immunity For Attorneys Conducting Judicial Sale

The Maryland Court of Appeals has held that two court-appointed trustees employed by a law firm who conducted the judicial sale of a condominium are not entitled to judicial immunity on claims of fraud and breach of fiduciary duties arising from the sale.

The trustees and the law firm (also sued on a theory of vicarious liability) are not considered to be judicial officers protected by immunity. (Mike Frisch)
