Baltimore to Pay $200,000 to Family of Electrocuted Girl
A 14 year old girl was fatally electrocuted in 2006 while stretching during a church softball game. Her parents, represented by Baltimore Attorney William H. “Billy” Murphy Jr. are fighting to make national changes that will ensure a similar fate doesn’t befall anyone else. Their efforts have resulted in new legislation in Maryland and Rhode Island that provide closer regulation of stray electricity. The state passed The Deanna Camille Green Act of 2012 as a result of the family’s efforts. After many years of legal back-and-forth, the city of Baltimore will settle with the family for $200,000.
