Opposing pitchers just can't stop Glynn Davis. The center fielder for High-A Frederick ranks third among qualified players in the Carolina League with a .316 batting average and is seventh in OPS at .826. He has recorded a hit in each of the Keys' last six games. Signed by the Orioles in 2010, Davis has become a dangerous leadoff hitter this year. The 22-year-old has upped his batting average from .234 last season, but he's most dangerous when he gets on base. Since 2011, the outfielder has 90 stolen bases, and has been thrown out just 29 times.

A Baltimore circuit judge rejected Wednesday a plan by the law firm of Peter G. Angelos to combine more than 10,000 asbestos-related lawsuits, questioning whether the cases caught in a massive backlog have enough in common to be heard in concert. "This Court is well aware of the need to provide justice for the large number of parties whose cases still languish on this docket," Judge John M. Glynn wrote. "But the current proposal is entirely too vague and unsupported to inspire confidence.

A mistrial was declared yesterday after a Baltimore Circuit Court jury was unable to reach a verdict in the case of a man charged with attempting to kill two city undercover city police officers March 12 on Elmley Avenue. Prosecuting attorney Richard Cecil said Judge John M. Glynn had no choice but to declare a hung jury after learning that one juror refused to participate in examining the evidence and had made up her mind at the beginning of the trial of 25-year-old William Floyd Crudup.

For the second time in two years, a Baltimore Circuit Court judge reaffirmed yesterday the life sentence of a Black Panther member convicted in the 1970 killing of a city police officer. Jack Ivory Johnson Jr. was granted a new sentencing hearing in 2002 because of a technical error during his original hearing. Police officers, including then-Commissioner Edward T. Norris, packed the hearing and argued that Johnson should remain in prison. Circuit Judge John M. Glynn agreed and re-imposed a sentence of life plus 15 years.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that the trial of three correctional officers accused of beating to death Raymond K. Smoot will remain in the city, rejecting a defense motion for change of venue. Dameon C. Woods, Nathan D. Colbert and James L. Hatcher are charged with second-degree murder in the case, which is scheduled for trial in September. They are accused of fatally attacking Smoot, 51, in May 2005 in his cell at the city Central Booking and Intake Center. Defense attorneys for the officers argued the change-of-venue motion in a hearing last month before Circuit Judge John M. Glynn.

There was Hugh Wade standing in a courtroom in January, asking a judge to delay his check fraud trial because he wasn't happy with his lawyer. It was an unusual request in Baltimore Circuit Court. But with this defendant, it was deja vu. "Isn't this the same situation we were in I don't know how many months ago?" Circuit Judge John M. Glynn asked Wade before denying his motion to dismiss his latest attorney. Through Wade's court file and previous court appearances, a tale emerges about a convicted 57-year-old counterfeiter charged with 19 counts of forgery and fraud who might be trying another scheme -- this time with the judicial system.

Pat Skerry didn't sound surprised that sophomore guard Four McGlynn had his best game in a Towson uniform in Saturday night's Colonial Athletic Association tournament quarterfinal victory over James Madison. As the Tigers coach reminded the media, the Vermont transfer has won a conference tournament before and played two games in the NCAA tournament. McGlynn also had the advantage of having been in Baltimore Arena previously, though for a far different reason than basketball.

The case of a 57-year-old woman charged with killing her husband for profit was delayed yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court because the woman criticized her lawyer, Warren A. Brown, in court, causing a heated confrontation that ended only when a judge called a "time out." Geralene Lincoln, who could receive two life sentences if she is convicted in the bludgeoning death in 1995 of her husband, Leroy Lincoln Sr., was supposed to face trial yesterday. Instead, she handed Judge John M. Glynn a stack of letters alleging that Brown, a high-profile lawyer, was neglecting her case.

Baltimore judges are hoping that city residents with jury duty this morning notice a welcome change: less waiting around. Starting today, the Circuit Court will shift the way it processes criminal cases by shuffling the duties of the 10 criminal judges. Instead of having each judge sift through dozens of routine court pleadings before getting to their trials, two judges will now spend their entire day handling those duties, leaving the rest to focus exclusively on trials. "Jurors will love it," said Judge John M. Glynn, who oversees the criminal caseload.

The two men who did nothing to stop the violent assault on a 73-year-old veteran Sun journalist -- who was kicked and beaten unconscious on a downtown street -- were sentenced yesterday to probation. Baltimore Circuit Judge John M. Glynn said that the criminal implications of Gregory Kulla's and Latar Bradshaw's inaction in February 2006 were less than the moral ones. The man convicted of carrying out the beating, Phillip M. Carter, 20, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. "It's morally shocking," Glynn said.

Three decades after Charles A. Hopkins shot to death a Baltimore councilman and wounded several others inside a temporary City Hall, a judge still felt uneasy yesterday about reducing the man's level of confinement. Hopkins, 66, was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 1976 shootings. Since then, he has spent most of his life at mental facilities in treatment for schizophrenia. He lived in a halfway house for several years, then was released conditionally in 2002. That was revoked when he began smoking marijuana.
