Margaret Mcd. Leonard, Administratrix of the Estate of Helen Duffy Wharton, Deceased, Appellant, v. James H. Wharton, Administrator, C.t.a., of the Estate of James P. Wharton, Deceased, Appellee, 396 F.2d 452 (4th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 396 F.2d 452 (4th Cir. 1968)

Submitted June 7, 1968
Decided June 13, 1968

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore; Alexander Harvey, II, Judge.

Margaret McD. Leonard, pro se.

Richard C. Rice, Cory, Boss & Rice, Laurel, Md., for appellee.

Before HAYNSWORTH, Chief Judge, and SOBELOFF and BUTZNER, Circuit Judges.


In this action for wrongful death, the District Court for the District of Maryland granted a motion to dismiss on the ground that the suit was barred by the statute of limitations. For the reasons fully expressed in the opinion of the district court, Leonard v. Wharton, 268 F. Supp. 715 (D. Md. 1967), we believe the present appeal is without hope of success, and therefore we dismiss it without allowing oral argument.

The appeal is dismissed.
