No new candidates have applied for a vacant Baltimore Circuit Court judgeship even though the deadline was extended to draw additional applicants, a state court official says.
The vacancy was created last month when Judge Joseph I. Pines, 70, retired after 12 years.
In an effort to increase the number of applicants, Gov. William Donald Schaefer ordered state court officials to extend the application deadline to March 12, said Michael V. O'Malley, an assistant state court administrator.
Mr. O'Malley said yesterday a few prospective candidates had requested applications. He said the position would be advertised again in the Daily Record and in bar association and other publications.
The three candidates are John Martin Glynn, head of the state Office of the People's Counsel; Albert Matricciani Jr., a partner with the law firm of Whiteford, Taylor and Preston; and Baltimore District Court Judge Carol E. Smith.
