A Maryland assistant attorney general has been disbarred for tax evasion. The state Attorney Grievance Commission could have suspended Anthony K. Waters but determined his case was so egregious that the only recourse was for his name to "be stricken from the rolls of those authorized to practice law in this State," according to the final order. Waters, who said he had no comment when reached by phone yesterday, had failed to file state income tax returns between 1990 and 1996, and failed to file federal income and withholding tax returns between 1990 and 1997.

In 1987, county PTA officials charged that budget decisions that eventually resulted in a storm of protest against the county Board of Education were initially made in a closed-door session. But the state's open-meetings law, described by one assistant attorney general as "very vague," could allow for such a private meeting. Given the nature of the decision made in that closed-door session, the law precludes state courts from penalizing the school board if the act was violated, the same assistant attorney general concluded.

The report that a lawyer in Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's office sent an email and left a voicemail message suggesting that the state should act quickly on a request from someone who claimed to be an important political supporter of the lawyer's boss contains a number of revelations that are unflattering — but not all that surprising. A person trying to get the state government to do something plays up a tenuous connection to a politician. That politician has ambitions for higher office, and the people working for him know it. And the politician reacts angrily and indignantly when that ambition is discussed in public.

In the five years since Maryland State Police agreed to change procedures to settle accusations of racial profiling, about 100 motorists lodged complaints. Not one allegation contending that the practice occurred during traffic stops has been upheld in police internal investigations. On Monday, a dispute over records of those investigations landed in Maryland's second-highest court. Lawyers for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and American Civil Liberties Union argued that the public should be able to learn how those probes were handled, while an assistant attorney general countered that the documents are personnel records because even with troopers' identities blacked out, the officers can be identified.
