An Anne Arundel County judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit brought by supporters of gubernatorial candidate Douglas F. Gansler who wanted to prevent his Democratic rivals from raising money during the General Assembly session. Judge William C.

Kane, runs for lieutenant governor with Ehrlich, John Kane is trying to keep himself and the Kane Co. out of the political crossfire. That's because while she seeks public office, John Kane is defending the business in a lawsuit that alleges federal contract fraud.

Opponents of the $1.5 billion State Center project asked a Circuit Court judge Wednesday to dismiss the state's legal action against them, arguing that they have a First Amendment right to go to court to protest plans to redevelop the aging government office complex in midtown Baltimore. More than two hours of arguments by attorneys from both sides ended without a decision by Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy. "We're allowed to object, and we're allowed to say we don't like your project," Alan M. Rifkin, an attorney for the redevelopment's opponents, said in his arguments.
