The Maryland Bar Association's Committee on Gender Equality meets this week to report on its review of "the Bollinger affair." We assume it will ask the Commission on Judicial Disabilities to investigate Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Thomas J. Bollinger. He recently gave a man convicted of second-degree rape probation before verdict. He accompanied this extraordinarily light sentence for such a crime with remarks that also raise questions about his judicial temperament.The Commission on Judicial Disabilities is required by law to investigate complaints it does not deem "frivolous."

It's tough to decide what was more outrageous about the events last Thursday in the courtroom of Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Thomas J. Bollinger:Was it more appalling that Judge Bollinger gave probation before judgment to a 44-year-old man convicted for the second-degree rape of an unconscious 18-year-old woman? Or that the judge expressed sympathy for the defendant and agreed with the defense attorney that Maryland's rape law "stinks"?As defined in the Annotated Code of Maryland, second-degree rape occurs when a person sexually forces himself or herself on another person who is "mentally defective, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless."

THERE are those who consider it mere coincidence that Joh Arnick and Judge Thomas J. Bollinger, both assailed during the past three months for sexually inappropriate comments and actions, come from Baltimore County.But insiders say it isn't coincidental, that judicial sexism and gender bias in county legal circles extend well beyond the two men, that the county courts' reputation for unfriendliness -- even hostility -- toward women is well deserved.Baltimore County, they note, was the last metropolitan subdivision to have a woman appointed to the Circuit Court.

A teen-ager who fired a gun inside White Marsh Mall in October -- attempting to win back a girlfriend -- has been found guilty of a crime that apparently doesn't exist.The defense attorney and prosecutor say they will move to strike the verdict of attempted involuntary manslaughter issued by Baltimore County Circuit Judge Thomas J. Bollinger, who heard the nonjury trial of 19-year-old John Matthew Miller on July 10 and 11."There isn't such an animal," said defense attorney Richard M. Karceski, who filed a motion to that effect last week in anticipation of sentencing Sept.

Judge Thomas J. Bollinger, some of his colleagues on the Circuit Court of Baltimore County and the Maryland Bar Association's Select Committee on Gender Equality all look a little silly in the latest episode linked to his highly publicized behavior in a rape case last spring.Judge Bollinger was roundly criticized then for his sentencing and his sentencing remarks. He sentenced the convicted man to a much less severe punishment than the state's guidelines' suggested as the minimum. He seemed to equate rape in this case with a minor property crime.

I couldn't agree more with the title of Dan Rodricks ' column ("A judge long overdue for retirement," July 3). Judge Thomas J. Bollinger has made ugly waves for years with various decisions, several quoted by Mr. Rodricks, that show his disrespect, unconcern and disdain for women. Why is this man still on the bench when he is past the mandatory retirement age of 70? Doesn't this counteract the law he purportedly supports? Can't someone get him away from us so we won't hear any more disgusting judgments like giving a bishop (a bishop!

Thomas J. Bollinger Sr., associate judge of the Baltimore County Circuit Court, hit the mandatory judicial retirement age of 70 last month, but he's still on the bench, and a certain Catonsville minister must be happy about that. Roan Faulkner, a Pentecostal bishop, sexually attacked a distressed woman who had gone to see him for help. For this he got an 18-month prison sentence, and the accommodating Judge Bollinger suspended all of it. That's not even a slap on the wrist; it's a caress.

The first full day of deliberations in the murder trial of Mary C. Koontz was marked by two rounds of questions from the jury — including queries about whether she had purchased a return trip to Florida, who would pay for her psychiatric care if she were sent to an institution and a timeline of voice mails she left on her husband's answering machine. Koontz is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death June 19 last year of her estranged husband, Ronald G. Koontz, and with the attempted murder of her daughter, Kelsey Koontz, who was 16 at the time.

On a rocking chair in the bedroom of his home in Monkton, Chuck Bollinger keeps a stack of warm clothing. Even assleep, he insists, he can hear the fire siren blaring from less than a mile away. He can quickly don a sweat suit and heavy socks, and within minutes be out the door, into his pickup and ready to respond to whatever emergency awaits at the Hereford Volunteer Fire Station. Chief Bollinger, a 15-year volunteer firefighter, knows that a fire, a car crash or a bad storm can set off that alarm and that a neighbor needs assistance.

Long before the outraged protests against Judge Robert Cahill's light sentence and sympathetic remarks for a man who killed his wife, another Baltimore County Circuit Court judge ran afoul of public opinion when he gave a wrist-slap (probation before judgment) to an unrepentant rapist, then worried aloud that Maryland law was too strict in such matters. This week, 17 months later, Judge Thomas Bollinger voluntarily released the "private reprimand" he received from the state's Commission on Judicial Disabilities, along with his response.

Joe Bollinger writes from Glen Burnie: "What is the record for the earliest and the latest date for the first freeze at BWI?" I asked National Weather Service meteorologist Howard Silverman to query Sterling's computers. He said the earliest date the BWI thermometer touched 32 or below was Oct. 4, 1974. The latest (since 1950) was Nov. 17, 1970. Baltimore's latest first freeze was Dec. 11, 1939.
