Administrative judge named for Howard and Carroll

September 25, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Carroll County District Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones has been named administrative judge for District 10, which includes Howard and Carroll counties.

Ellinghaus-Jones succeeds Judge James N. Vaughan, who left the post last week to become chief judge of Maryland's District Court system. Her appointment took effect Thursday.

Ellinghaus-Jones was named to the bench in 1991 and was reappointed this year to a second 10-year term.

As administrative judge, she will coordinate scheduling and handle personnel and commissioner-related issues, among other duties, in the seven-judge district.

Ellinghaus-Jones, 45, is chairwoman of the Commissioner Education Committee for the District Court system. Before her appointment as a District Court judge, she was in private practice and was town attorney in Manchester for several years during the 1980s.
