With public interest focused on judicial responses to women's issues, most of Maryland's 242 judges are expected in Towson today and tomorrow for a conference on family violence convened by Chief Judge Robert C. Murphy.
"They can't come away without being fairly educated in all the
intricacies and concerns of domestic violence," Judge Murphy said of the event. "I think it's important that the world know that we are looking at this. This is an official function. . . . We keep a list of who's not there."
