    A coalition of trucking and insurance industry stakeholders are working to address unscrupulous towing companies engaged in nonconsensual towing, a growing problem that continues to disrupt the supply chain and a practice that the coalition believes effectively amounts to insurance fraud…..When a big truck is involved in an accident, the Maryland State Police (MSP) generally dispatches a towing company to handle the tow or recovery of the truck, trailer, and/or cargo. These are referred to as “nonconsensual tows. The problem is not with MSP itself, but rather the lack of any consumer protections from towing companies ..“One of the problems in Maryland is that there are no rules that prevent towing companies from charging whatever they want. There is also no viable complaint process for truck drivers caught up in this mess,” said Mike Matousek, director of state legislative affairs at the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association.

    The Maryland Attorney General joined a bipartisan coalition of 48 attorneys general in continuing to fight to end Facebook’s illegal efforts to stifle competition and protect its monopoly power. According to the Attorney General, over the last decade, Facebook, now known as Meta, illegally acquired competitors in a predatory manner and cut or conditioned services to smaller threats — depriving users of the benefits of competition and reducing privacy protections and services along the way — all in an effort to boost its bottom line through increased advertising.
