Lawsuit filed by skateboarder against Baltimore police officer thrown out on technicality

Justin Fenton reports in the Sun:
A lawsuit against a Baltimore police officer who was famously recorded on a YouTube video yelling at young skateboarders at the Inner Harbor for calling him "dude" has been thrown out by a city judge.

Circuit Judge Evelyn Cannon granted a defense motion for summary judgment to dismiss the case.... after Cannon determined that it was filed outside the 180-day time frame to bring legal action, reversing an earlier decision by a different judge.
Do you think there's any relation between the fallout from that youtube clip, less aggressive policing in the Inner Harbor, and the recent spate of shootings there?
