University of Baltimore Law Review


The author investigates the manner in which Maryland's wrongful death statute discriminates against illegitimate children. An evaluation of this statute is made in the light of recent Supreme Court decisions dealing with the rights of illegitimates. The author concludes that the current Maryland law as applied to an illegitimate child's right to recover for the wrongful death of his father is unconstitutional.
