31 apply for two open seats on Anne Arundel District Court

August 24, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Thirty-one lawyers, including a former judge and former Republican committee chairman for the county, are seeking 10-year appointments to two positions on the District Court bench.

At least seven candidates are current or former prosecutors, at least two were unsuccessful Republican candidates for local office and one is a federal EPA lawyer. Several are past applicants for judgeships.

David S. Bruce, a former District Court judge appointed to Circuit Court, lost a race in November to retain his position on the Circuit Court. Michael Malone is a former Arundel GOP Central Committee chairman.

The governor will make the appointments from a list that will be winnowed down in mid-October by the Judicial Nominating Commission.
