Judge overturns $38 million award in police killing of Baltimore woman

A Baltimore County judge on Thursday overturned a jury decision that granted $38 million to the family of a 23-year-old woman who was killed by police in 2016.

Judge Mickey J. Norman dismissed claims from Korryn Gaines’s family against Baltimore County and the officer involved, saying he believed the “non-economic damages awarded to the various Plaintiffs are excessive and shocks the conscience.”

J. Wyndal Gordon, an attorney for Gaines’s family, told The Baltimore Sun his clients intend to appeal the ruling.
