'Crabtree in his equity suit against the City ol Cumberland for payment of salary and expenses as a result of injuries suffered while on duty. 'The court ruled that the city must pay in full salaries and medical and hospital expenses of police officers Judge Bruce Rules In Favor Of Policeman Injured On Duty Police Department when Injured In course ol employment. -The language Is plain and the term 'full compensation 1 has no relationship to the Workmen's Compensation Act, but means what it says. "Under Its terms policemen are entitled to full base pay when by reason of injury they are prevented from performing their duty." „, of Baltimore "and George Street the day before Christmas, 1946. He was hospitalized and unable to rqturn to work until April 26, 1917. Through his attorneys, Paul M, Fletcher and Milton Gerson, he claimed $711.60 in unpaid salary, $70 hospital expense and. S75 surgical expense. The city .claimed, according to Thomas B. Pinan, city solicitor, that under the local law, the police officer was entitled to 'two-thirds pay under the Workmen's Compensation Act, and 5t was cited that several similar instances of personal injury of police and firemen had been handled in this same manner. The city a'.so contended that Crabtree made a cash settlement with Johnny's Cab Company, owner of the vehicle which struck him, and he therefore had been paid for the time he lost. Judge Bruce, In his opinion wrote, "Chapter 871, Acts of 1943, of the General Assembly of Maryland, is an act as its title discloses, among other things, to reRUlntc nick leave and expenses of members of Hie I gaged thus policemen are entitled to full compensation when by reason of injury etc. they are prevented from performing their duties as such. "From the testimony of the respondent (city), it appears," Judge Bruce continued, "that little or no effort to assist the complainant (Crabtree) or investigate the matter was made by the head of the particular (po'.ice) department, and the complainant cannot be made to suffer dire to the failure of the respondent to act with dispatch." "It further appears, that the superiors of the complainant failed to carry out the order of the Mayor (1936) which was introduced as evidence by the respondent. "The testimony of the complainant is clear as to his injuries occurring in the cause of his duty. He further detailed his efforts to obtain compensation which were denied by the respondent. ' Judge Bruce cited several cases and references supporting various phases of his opinion. An inter- part of the opinion I.H the ruling on the status of police officers. The Court wrote, "A.police- man is a public official, a public officer. The relationship of a police' officer and the municipality cannot be construed as that of master and servant. A police officer is clothed with sovereignty, limited to the government and discipline of that particular entity. or authority for which he acts. The right of subrogation, therefore is not recognized in this case." The Jurist concluded, "For the foregoing reasons, the Court shall sign a decree when presented overruling the demurrer, filed herein and requiring the City to pay unto •the complainant' his expenses incurred as a result of his injury, his full base pay for the period of his Incapacity and decreeing, 'full compensation', to mean full base pay."
