Hazlett, 46, will be one of three female judges in the county.

For a state that has taken great pains to shield its judges from undue political pressures, Maryland now faces a dilemma. It can beef up its system of judicial discipline or watch as public anger fuels pressure for impeaching a Baltimore County Circuit Court judge who imposed a light sentence and expressed sympathy for a man who killed his wife.At a press conference in Annapolis earlier this month, a majority of women legislators announced that they will initiate action in the General Assembly to remove Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert Cahill from the bench.

THERE WERE moments of humor and even what might pass for candor during some contentious exchanges. But, for the most part, the confirmation hearings of John G. Roberts Jr. to be chief justice of the United States have been carefully scripted, with few if any surprises. Given the stakes - the first hearing on a Supreme Court nominee in 11 years and the first for chief justice in 19 years - the posturing by some senators and the frequent evasiveness by Judge Roberts was predictable.

The Dundalk man gunned down last week outside his tavern was struck by four bullets in the head and four in the chest. He was still breathing when help arrived but was beyond saving by the time he reached a hospital. A day after Robert Lee Martin's wife, her brother and two accomplices were charged with first-degree murder in the barkeep's death, additional details of the killing emerged Thursday in a Towson courtroom during the defendants' bail review hearing. Garret P. Glennon, an assistant state's attorney who oversees murder charges for the county, told the judge that an "appreciable amount of planning" had gone into the shooting of the tavern owner early Saturday as he left Hop's Inn for the night, a "coordinated effort" that involved a "division of labor."

A federal immigration judge who presides over sensitive visa and deportation cases sought a financial partnership with a Virginia firm whose clients could end up before him in court, according to a tape recording seized in a government raid.
