Maryland legislators were urged yesterday to change state law to avoid a repeat of the challenge to thousands of absentee ballots cast in the 1994 gubernatorial election.At issue in the challenges was the requirement that voters sign an affidavit before obtaining an absentee ballot, said George Beall, a Republican former prosecutor who headed a task force that examined Maryland's election laws last year.Because the voter must sign an affidavit on the ballot itself, the first affidavit should not be required, Mr. Beall told the Senate Economic and Environmental Affairs Committee.

A great frustration of daily crime reporting is that when readers want to know the most about a shooting incident or other crime, there's often very little information available. You end up with a few paragraphs about where and when, the victim's age, and the standard line that police are investigating. That's why we scour court documents looking for cases that may - even if indirectly - shed new light on some of those incidents. Earlier this week, a 66-page affidavit in a broad drug conspiracy case was made available, and while the document consists of transcriptions of mostly bland, intercepted drug conversations, the DEA also picked up their targets discussing recent shootings in East Baltimore's Latrobe Homes area.  On March 29, at about 10:53 a.m., authorities were listening in as Corey Donnell Brown, 38, also known as "Slug," and Damond Terrell Brown, 35, known as "Ray Ray," spoke on the phone and talked about a shooting of Brandon Branch, according to the affidavit.

A city agency is apparently persuaded that Milan looks, swims, and quacks so much like a nightclub that it's probably a nightclub. But, it says, Milan has no business being one. The establishment's opponents from the get-go have claimed that Milan was a nightclub masquerading as a restaurant, and they've repeatedly pressed the Baltimore City Liquor License Board to take action. And while the liquor board has historically been the agency to discipline and sanction license-holding establishments, it appears that a new city agency has stepped into the fray.

The man who nearly 30 years ago prosecuted Mark Farley Grant for murder in Baltimore says he never would have brought the case had he known then what he knows today - that a key state's witness had testified only after being threatened at gunpoint by relatives of the original suspect. Phillip G. Dantes, who served as an assistant city state's attorney in the 1980s, says that, in light of information he now has, he would have prosecuted the original suspect, Mark "Shane" White, who is now deceased, instead of Mr. Grant.
