Suzanne K. Mensh, who served Baltimore County for nearly five decades as an Orphans' Court judge and then as clerk of the county Circuit Court, died Wednesday at Northwest Hospital. Her family said no cause of death was given. She was 82. "She was a sincere lady," said a son, Spencer Mensh of Reisterstown. "The first word that comes to mind with her is 'integrity.'" Judge Mensh was encouraged to run for office by members of a local Democratic club who worked with her at polling locations, her son said.

Suzanne K. Mensh, who ran Baltimore County's orphans' court for two decades and served as Circuit Court clerk for six terms, died Wednesday at Northwest Hospital. Her family said no cause of death was given. Mensh, 82, had been admitted to the hospital four days earlier because of her deteriorating physical condition, said a son, Spencer Mensh of Reisterstown. "She loved, heart and soul, what she did," he said by phone Friday. Mensh served as the clerk of the Baltimore County Circuit Court from 1986 until May 2010.

At 73, Suzanne Mensh has been clerk of the Circuit Court in Baltimore County since 1986, and she considers her experience a major selling point in her bid for a fifth term. One of Mensh's challengers is focusing on how she handles her staff of 120 and on her firing of a court clerk in October. Yvonne Clark, one of two fellow Democrats running against Mensh for the $75,000-a-year post, has criticized Mensh for the dismissal and says Mensh is hostile to unions. "We need to look at her hiring and personnel practices and see how she's running that office," said Clark, 54, of Woodlawn, a benefits administrator for the city Circuit Court.

Hours have been cut at Baltimore County's land records office, a move that the head of a key county bar association committee described as "catastrophic" with interest rates declining and the demand for mortgage refinancing rising. Circuit Court Clerk Suzanne K. Mensh instituted the new hours Oct. 22, expressing concern over security and what she termed acts of vandalism that have occurred in the office. Mensh cut the daily closing hour from 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. and eliminated the Saturday hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The office opens at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Baltimore County Circuit Court Clerk Suzanne K. Mensh agreed yesterday to extend the hours at the county land records office after cutbacks last month sparked an outcry from real estate abstractors and lawyers. The abstractors, who research property deeds, joined others in the real estate industry in complaining that the hours had been reduced during one of their busiest times. Interest rates near record lows have spurred property sales and mortgage refinancings. Mensh reduced the hours of the land records office after employees in her office reported that personal items had been stolen and computers tampered with after they left for the day. The clerk's office, which handles civil and criminal records, and marriage licenses, is on the second floor of the circuit courthouse, along with land records.

Here's another example why judges should not have to get embroiled in elective politics. Only this time, the bad example was set by some judges and their court clerk, not a bunch of ward heelers seeking to undermine the sanctity of the judiciary.Suzanne Mensh, the circuit court clerk for Baltimore County, decided last month that citizens called for jury duty would benefit by a little lecture on the judicial system. Not a bad idea, on its face. But for about a year the jurors have been shown a video doing just that.

After more than a week interrogating witnesses and drawing diagrams of the crime scene, Baltimore County sheriff's deputies are no closer to nabbing the culprit who fired what probably was a paper clip at Circuit Court Clerk Suzanne Mensh.The Oct. 2 incident, in which a piece of metal apparently launched by a rubber band stung Mensh behind her left ear, follows anonymous written messages around her office and unauthorized calls to international sex hot lines from clerk's office phones."I just felt I should let the sheriff know because I felt it was an unacceptable act," Mensh said of the attack.

Justice has eluded Ronnell Doughty, perhaps even failed him. Hospitalized as a toddler with serious lead poisoning, he's never learned to read well, dropped out of school and has a hard time controlling his temper — tragic but all-too-common outcomes of this urban health scourge. But Doughty, now 21, has been repeatedly denied a shot at compensation for the lasting injury done him two decades ago. His family says in court papers that two lawyers mishandled the lawsuit on his behalf against the landlords of the East Baltimore rowhouse where he allegedly ingested toxic lead from flaking paint.

After more than a half-century in elected office, including 24 years as Baltimore County clerk of the court — followed by a brief retirement that she said was forced on her — it appears that Suzanne Mensh is officially out of a job. Although she has yet to concede, Mensh trailed Julie Ensor by more than 5,000 votes after Tuesday's Democratic primary. She came in second but won more votes than Richard D. Arnold Jr., who was appointed interim clerk in June after Mensh's retirement.

Suzanne Mensh wants her job back. Whether she can have it is another question. Baltimore County's longtime clerk of the court inspired a stampede of interest in the $98,500-a-year position last month when she announced plans to retire at the end of May. More than a dozen candidates have applied to serve the six months left in her term, and one county councilman says he is considering a run for the office in November. Mensh says that it was the aspiration of Councilman Sam Moxley, a Catonsville Democrat who has been arrested for driving under the influence twice in the past four years, that led her to rescind her resignation.
