The Maryland General Assembly recently enacted a new mechanics' lien statute in response to a Maryland Court of Appeals decision which held that portions of the former mechanics' lien were incompatible with the due process clauses of the Maryland Declaration of Rights and the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution. The author discusses the defects in the old law noted by the court and the attempt to remedy those defects in the new law.
