Megan B. Johnson, chief of the civil division of the county state's attorney's office, yesterday was named a finalist for an impending vacancy on the county's District Court bench.
Johnson, 38, joins sixother attorneys as finalists for the opening that will be created when Judge Robert N. Lucke retires May 3, Judith C. Levinson, legal officer for the state Administrative Office of the Courts, said yesterday.
The other six were unsuccessful finalists to fill a vacancy created by the retirement of District Judge Thomas J. Curley Jr. Gov. William Donald Schaefer this month appointed Annapolis attorney Vincent A. Mulieri, 52, to fill the Curley vacancy. Their names were automatically carried over as finalists for the Lucke vacancy.
