A federal judge said Friday he would consider lighter-than-normal sentences for members of a major suburban marijuana smuggling organization - the latest fallout of the drug's legalization in several U.S. states. U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar noted that federal authorities announced this summer they would not pursue criminal cases against dispensaries and others legally handling marijuana in states where the drug has been legalized. Bredar, who called the hearing to discuss the issue, said it might be more appropriate to compare the defendants in the Maryland marijuana case to smugglers of improperly taxed cigarettes rather than treat them as hardened drug traffickers.

Two Baltimore-area nominees to the federal bench, Ellen Lipton Hollander and James K. Bredar, moved a step closer to confirmation Thursday when the Judiciary committee voted to send their names to the full Senate. The Marylanders won approval on voice votes, without opposition, but could still face a considerable wait to begin their lifetime appointments. At least 23 other judicial nominees are already in line for Senate debate and final action, as Republicans continue to slow the confirmation process.

A federal magistrate has ruled that lawyers for a former assistant city solicitor may interview employees of Baltimore's law department to prepare their age discrimination case against the city. Magistrate Judge James K. Bredar said in a decision published yesterday that although he could not issue a formal order requiring the city to allow the interviews, he also would not prohibit them. Stanley C. Rogosin, 55, asked for an order in his lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, which alleges he was forced out last year because of his age after Thurman W. Zollicoffer Jr. became city solicitor.
