Maryland Dowry-Mahr Cases

PUBLISHED CASES

UNPUBLISHED CASES

In this Unpublished Case, Wife raised two issues on Appeal:
1. Did the trial court err or abuse its discretion by dismissing her declaratory judgment action and therefore not addressing the contract interpretation question it raised?
2. Did the trial court err by ruling that resolution of the contract interpretation question presented in the declaratory judgment action would require prohibited judicial review of a religious question? The appellate Court found that under Maryland law, CJP section 3-409(d),  “[p]roceeding by declaratory judgment is not permitted in any case in which divorce . . . is sought[,]”. Accordingly the Court affirmed the Trial Court’s judgment and found not necessary to address the second question.
