The Sun's obituary page carried the brief, unheralded notice of the death of Benjamin Lipsitz, which occurred on May 10. Consistent with Ben's penchant for humility, the notice went on to say that services were to be private. If those were his instructions or his family's wishes, then of course they had to be followed. However, it behooves our city and state to take pause to note the passing of one of Baltimore's great lawyers. Admitted to the bar in 1952, Ben proceeded to practice his craft for the next 60 years taking on the cases no other lawyer would handle, representing the unpopular, the underdog, and the undesirables.

Lawyers for Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold have asked a federal judge to impose fines on the lawyer representing a former county employee who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Leopold. County Attorney Jonathan Hodgson filed the motion on Nov. 3, asking the court to penalize attorney John M.

Hamner, who initially filed the $10 million suit against Leopold in August, claiming sexual harassment, gender discrimination and workplace retaliation.

Last week, more than 1,500 people - most of them recent law school graduates - found out whether they passed the Maryland Bar Examination, a grueling, two-day test designed to assess the taker's readiness to enter the marketplace and become your lawyer. Despite a decrease in law school applications nationwide and increasing concerns that the United States has too many lawyers, most test takers - about 80 percent - passed the Maryland bar exam given in July. Barring any issues that cast doubt on their "character and fitness" to be a lawyer, these successful test takers will be sworn in before the Court of Appeals of Maryland in January.

As the alleged leader of the Black Guerrilla Family gang at the Baltimore jail, Tavon White could get access to pretty much whatever he wanted, according to federal prosecutors: drugs, phones, money and sex. But he is now being held under more straightened circumstances at a state prison in Cumberland, according to his attorney, who is asking a judge to reconsider the conditions of his detention. “The totality of his belongings were as follows: a jump suit, one pair of underwear, shower sandals, a sheet for the bed. Period,” the lawyer, Gary E. Proctor, wrote in a court filing.

Dajuan Marshall's convictions Monday for murder and gang participation — the first under a 2007 state law — could be thrown out because of juror misconduct, his lawyer said Tuesday. Defense attorney Roland Walker plans to ask for a mistrial during a hearing Thursday in Baltimore Circuit Court. The proceeding was scheduled after a juror told the judge that at least one jury member had Googled Marshall's background during the trial. The woman also said members of the jury lost relatives to homicide, which was never properly disclosed during the selection process, according to Walker.
