Joseph A. Ciotola Sr., former longtime administrative judge of Baltimore's District Court and a decorated World War II veteran, died Saturday of heart failure at his Catonsville home. He was 88. Judge Ciotola's career spanned 15 years - from 1976 when he was appointed by Gov. Marvin Mandel to the District Court - until he was forced to step down in 1991 because he had passed the mandatory retirement age of 70. "I got to know Judge Ciotola in my first job out of law school as a prosecutor, and I tried many a case in front of him," Gov. Martin O'Malley recalled yesterday.

In the office of the administrative judge of Baltimore's District Court, two desks and two credenzas have been pushed together to form a large rectangle of dark wood on which sit stacks of legal journals, court papers and law books.Colleagues of Judge Joseph A. Ciotola say it's easy to understand why the stacks are so tall and the space to hold them so large: Judge Ciotola, who arrives for work at 5:30 a.m. and leaves well after the last case is heard, oversees Maryland's busiest and largest lower court system.

Robert Seymour is free after five months in jail without a trial.Baltimore District Court Judge Joseph A. Ciotola yesterday dismissed a traffic-related charge of violation of probation against Seymour, 48, saying he already had served more time in jail than the charges would merit were he convicted.A mix-up over Seymour's first and middle names apparently led to the jail's failing to bring him to four different court hearings the last several months. Seymour said he often told jail officials that he needed a trial date.

After his second heart operation, Judge Joseph Ciotola happened to bump into Timothy D. Murphy, the city councilman from southwest Baltimore."How are you feeling?" Murphy asked."Wonderful," said Ciotola, who is 71 years old, "but the doctors tell me I've got to cut back on my work days."This was like a higher court handing him a written decision. Naturally, the judge listened to them. Instead of arriving for work each day at 5 o'clock in the morning, as he'd done for years, Ciotola would dawdle at home and show up as late as 6 in the morning.

Prompted by the communication breakdown that preceded a veteran police officer's suicide in his jail cell in Baltimore last week, the top judge of the city's District Court has called for a change in court procedures.Judge Mary Ellen T. Rinehardt said Monday that she expects computer programmers will be able to modify court documents to highlight messages from the court to the Baltimore City Detention Center."I think it will be done," said the judge, who met with a computer expert last week on her proposal.

A veteran policeman who authorities say hanged himself in jail yesterday morning after killing his wife and a friend had been recommended for suicide watch by a District Court judge, but the word never reached jail officials.No one took bedsheets from Joseph E. Reynolds, a Baltimore police officer for more than 20 years who joined the force of a small Cecil County town two years ago, when he went into protective custody at Baltimore City Detention Center Monday night.Yesterday morning, Officer Reynolds apparently tied several slip knots in one sheet around his neck, anchored another sheet over the first and asphyxiated himself by tying the sheets to the top of his cell bars.

Judge Ciotola KindnessEditor: It was with disappointment that I read of the compulsory retirement of Judge Joseph A. Ciotola, especially since he is mentally and physically able to continue in his present position.I have never met Judge Ciotola, but I will never forget his compassion shown several years ago.According to an article in another paper, an elderly lady was found walking in the snow without shoes; she had been robbed, items even taken from her suitcase.The officers who picked her up, tried, without success to have one of the charity organizations give her a place to stay.
