Board of Education of Howard County the Maryland Court of Appeals stated that a requirement an accident arise from "unusual activity" is not supported in the Maryland Act, and is a minority view in the nation. Accordingly, the Court overruled the line of cases that injected the "unusual activity" requirement. An article in the Washington Post comments on the magnitude of this change.
