The ruling handed down recently by the Maryland Court of Appeals was the result of a long-running lawsuit filed by a group of more than 60 retired firefighters and police officers seeking increases in their pensions in tandem with increases in the city's current pay scale.

The state's highest court upheld yesterday the conviction and life-without-parole sentence of a man convicted of raping and killing a woman in Annapolis. Unsuccessful in past appeals of his conviction, Alvin Winslow Gross again failed to convince the Court of Appeals that a poor job by his lawyer was to blame for the outcome of his 1994 trial in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. The Court of Appeals said that, given the overwhelming evidence of his guilt, the verdict would have been no different had defense attorney Peter S. O'Neill taken different approaches to some issues.

Annapolis does not have to match retired firefighters' pensions to the raises it gives working firefighters, the state's second-highest court has ruled. The decision comes in a long-simmering dispute between 62 retirees who argue that the city was wrong to deny them raises, among them a 5 percent increase in 1995.

On Friday, a three-judge panel of the Court of Special Appeals agreed.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Robert H. Heller Jr. will retire by the end of June, creating a fourth vacancy on the 10-judge bench and giving Gov. Parris N. Glendening the opportunity to have chosen all of its judges. Speculation that Heller, a judge for 18 years, would retire when he turned 60 on March 8 had been rampant for months, even after he told the governor last summer that he wished to be reappointed for a second 15-year term. During a February vacation "it started to feel right to me that the time was now," he said.

The Anne Arundel-based developer said over three years he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to play by Queen Anne's County development rules to build in the designated growth area.

In a ruling that may leave a legal gap in police drug searches, the state's second-highest court said yesterday that police cannot frisk passengers for drugs based on a police dog's detecting the smell of drugs in the car in which they are riding. Defense lawyers said the unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel of the Court of Special Appeals offers some protection for passengers who otherwise would be subject to body searches. Gary E. Bair, chief of criminal appeals for the state attorney general's office, said it also might mean that under many circumstances, police couldn't touch a passenger holding drugs for others in a car. Bair said his office will challenge the ruling and ask the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, to hear the case.
