The doctrine of charitable immunity frees charitable institutions from any civil liability that may attach as a consequence of the charity's tortious acts. The doctrine has been somewhat delimited in Maryland, and after analyzing the historical and legal basis of the doctrine, the author maintains that the continued, qualified recognition of the doctrine in Maryland is inequitable and without present legal justification.
