During a hearing that raised concerns about the role of judges in state policy-making, Montgomery County urged the state's highest court yesterday to block a settlement that would send millions in new aid to Baltimore schools.Attorney Roger W. Titus argued that the settlement affects schools and taxpayers in the counties, and therefore should not have been decided without Montgomery County's participation.He asked the Maryland Court of Appeals to void the settlement and send the case back to Baltimore Circuit Court to be tried -- or settled again with the county at the negotiating table.

H. Kaplan denied the state's request to dismiss the lawsuit, which it challenged because Baltimore was not named as a party in the suit.The suit alleges that the state fails to aid Baltimore sufficiently for the city to provide adequate education to its students.

A Montgomery County citizens group recommended yesterday that the County Council regulate unmetered water billing in apartment complexes, making Montgomery the second municipality in the state to suggest curbs to the practice. The group suggested that the county restrict the way residents can be charged for water and sewer use, and limit service fees and charges that landlords can pass to tenants. A Howard County group made similar suggestions in December and also recommended that unmetered billing be outlawed in Howard by 2013.

If there had been anyone left in the cold, somber courtroom there would have been a buzz when Gary Williams walked in. After all, it isn't every day that a celebrity, especially the basketball coach at the University of Maryland, comes to court.But by the time Williams, 45, walked into the newly christened Montgomery County District Court in Silver Spring to face drunken driving charges yesterday, the courtroom was empty.In its previous life, the courthouse had been a funeral home, and the aura certainly matched Williams' mood, as he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to drive within a single lane.
