Larry T. Fitzgerald v. R&R Trucking Inc., No. 58 (Md. App. Dec. 11, 2003), Davis, J.

The lower court did not err in granting summary judgment to a Missouri-based employer of a truck driver who applied for workers’ compensation benefits in Maryland for a work related injury in Pennsylvania. The court found that “regular employment” under the statute meant a uniform course of conduct. In this case, the claimant’s employment in Maryland was more akin to a matter of chance. He did not spend a considerable time in Maryland and only performed a route originating in Maryland nine times over a period of five months.
