Circuit Court Bench Bar Committee 

     The Circuit Court Bench Bar Committee is gearing up for another year and we are again looking forward to working the Committee.  This Committee is represented by members of and very fortunate to work closely with: the Circuit Court Administrative Judge and other representatives of the Court; the Clerk of the Court; the Sheriff’s Office; the State’s Attorney’s Office; the Office of the Public Defender; the BAMC; and the County Attorney’s Office.

Rules 1-322.1 and 1-322.2

     Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure submitted to the Court of Appeals its One Hundred Eighty-Fourth Report and recommends that the Court repeal Rule 1-322.2 and adopt an amendment to Rule 1-322.1.  This Report is posted on the Judiciary’s website and also appeared in the July 11, 2014 issue of the Maryland Register.  
     The Court of Appeals held an open meeting on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, to consider the 184th Report.
     If you have any concerns to bring to the Committee’s attention, please feel free to contact any Committee member or Committee Co-Chairs David C. Merkin at (301) 762-9200 or; or Michael A. Taylor at (301) 251-2772,
