Maryland's fight to get out of its $52 million exit fee for leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2014 took an unpleasant - but not unexpected - turn Monday when a North Carolina judge refused a motion by the school to drop a lawsuit filed by the ACC in November. The ACC sued Maryland when university officials announced in November that the school was leaving for the Big Ten after being a charter member of the ACC. According to a spokesman for Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler, Guilford County Superior Court Judge John O. Craig III denied a motion filed by attorneys for Maryland last month.

A Baltimore circuit judge on Wednesday dismissed Comptroller Joan M. Pratt's lawsuit that alleged the Rawlings-Blake administration was illegally installing a new municipal phone system. In an oral ruling, Judge Pamela J. White said she couldn't find any illegal actions in the administration's conduct and noted the Mayor's Office of Information Technology had not installed any new phones since 2011, rendering the suit pointless. White dismissed the suit with prejudice, meaning it cannot be refiled.

In a pivotal day of testimony in the Phylicia Barnes murder trial, a 36-year-old petty criminal the defense has dismissed as a "jailhouse snitch" took the stand as one of the prosecution's key witnesses. James McCray, currently locked up in Charles County on a theft conviction, began his testimony by saying his name was actually Jason Lee and that he had drifted to Baltimore six years ago from New York and run an under-the-table business helping unqualified drivers get tags and titles.

In a move that the county attorney and elected officials conceded was highly unusual, the Anne Arundel County Council weighed a measure this week that would have spelled the ouster of the county's top health official, Dr. Angela M. Wakhweya, the first African-American to hold the position in the county Health Department's 81-year history. Though details of the complaints against Wakhweya have not been made public, her boss, Maryland Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene Joshua M. Sharfstein, sent County Executive John R. Leopold and each council member a letter last week asking their "concurrence … in the removal" of Wakhweya based on assessments made by the state's health and personnel departments, as well as its director of equal opportunity programs.

It's been four games since Jim Caldwell replaced Cam Cameron as the team's offensive coordinator. One might think that Caldwell is feeling comfortable with his role, but he disagreed Thursday with the notion that he is “settled in.” “I don't think we ever really feel comfortable and settled in,” he said. “But I'm a bit more familiar with some things. But it's a real challenge, calling plays and adjusting. But I've got a lot of help with assistant coaches that are on the staff.

A Baltimore lawyer issued a speed camera ticket despite his vehicle being stationary missed his chance to argue his case when the city asked that a Baltimore District Court judge dismiss the case Friday. Daniel Doty, the driver, urged the judge to view the video of the alleged violation and award him costs for the time taken to fight the ticket, but she declined to do so. "It's really outside the purview of the court," District Court Judge Melissa K. Copeland said. Doty's case was placed at the end of the hour-long docket and promptly dropped.

If nothing else, the surprising in-season dismissal of Cam Cameron this week should provide some clarity at a time when the Ravens are going through a serious offensive identity crisis, but you may not like what it eventually reveals. Now, we're finally going to find out whether it was Cameron who was holding Joe Flacco back or the other way around. The only thing that was obvious was that Flacco was no longer progressing under Cameron and the Ravens attack had become inconsistent and incoherent.

The Sykesville Town Council voted Monday night, Nov. 26, to maintain the town's contract for a U.S. Post Office, and the town will plan to hire at least two new employees to operate it. The decision does not guarantee the post office's future, however, as the council plans to address its fate again during next year's town budget talks. It was a decision that pleased the full house, where many stated the importance of the post office to the town for not only its services, but also for its atmosphere.

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is due back at Fort Meade this week, where lawyers for the alleged WikiLeaker plan to argue that he was punished at a military brig before his case had been heard — grounds, they say, to dismiss all charges against him. By the time he arrived at the Marine Corps brig at Quantico, Va., Manning was world famous. The former intelligence analyst, who lived in Maryland before enlisting in the Army, had been accused of giving hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.
