U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz swiftly denied a defense attorney's request for federal intervention in a state proceeding, dismissing the case a day after it was filed. Attorney Gary Proctor had filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus Tuesday, contending that his 19-year-old indigent client was unconstitutionally jailed before trial without evidence to support the gun, assault and attempted murder charges against him. A Baltimore Circuit Court judge threw out a photo identification of defendant Christopher Robinson last month because the picture had been significantly altered by police.

J. Frederick Motz, a Reagan appointee to Maryland's federal bench, was considered by many, including his wife, to be an obvious choice for an appellate seat.

A federal judge in Baltimore rejected yesterday Microsoft's plan to settle class-action lawsuits by giving needy public schools $1 billion worth of free computers and software. The decision by Chief U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz handed the software giant another blow in a series of courtroom defeats as it tries to overcome accusations that it has used its monopoly power to overcharge customers. Motz concluded that the proposed settlement would heavily favor the introduction of Microsoft software in schools eligible for the donations, dealing a competitive blow to rivals such as Apple Computer Inc., which controls about a third of the education market.

A U.S. judge in Baltimore questioned yesterday how plaintiffs in 38 consumer lawsuits can claim that Microsoft Corp. charged them illegally inflated monopoly prices if they didn't purchase the Windows operating system directly from the world's largest software maker. U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz's questions raised the specter that he might dismiss the largest block of consumer suits filed against Microsoft after another federal court found last year that the company illegally protected its Windows monopoly.

A federal court judge on Wednesday dismissed Baltimore's landmark lawsuit against Wells Fargo & Co., saying it was "not plausible" that the mortgage giant triggered millions of dollars in damages, as the city claimed, by causing increased foreclosures through racist, predatory lending. "The alleged connection is even more implausible when considered against the background of other factors leading to the deterioration of the inner city," U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz explained in a six-page memorandum opinion accompanying the dismissal order.

A federal judge raised doubts Monday about the city's ability to prove huge financial losses from houses left vacant by Wells Fargo foreclosures, the latest development in a landmark civil suit alleging a pattern of racially based, discriminatory lending by the mortgage broker. U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz said he might pare the case, if not outright dismiss it. "Should we go down that road? ... It's going to cost a lot of people a lot of money, including the taxpayers," said Motz, who took over the case in August after the previous judge discovered a conflict of interest.

Despite recently losing commercial service once supported by federal subsidies, Hagerstown Regional Airport marks the completion today of a $62 million project that extended its runway by 1,500 feet. The lengthened 7,000-foot runway will allow fully loaded regional jets and charter planes to fly to places such as St. Louis or Atlanta, the airport's director, Carolyn S. Motz, said yesterday. "Now we can do what they do at Reagan National, what any airport that has 7,000 feet of runway does," Motz said.

Standing before the bar of justice to answer for his crimes, former state Sen. Thomas L. Bromwell was accorded a stature he never quite attained. He was hailed as a mighty poobah, one of the "most powerful," a lion of the legislature whose wish could not be safely ignored. Those who watched him in General Assembly councils remember a somewhat different figure. He was a bar owner who flaunted his rough edges. He was a big man with a dark, wavy forelock. He laughed a little too loudly.

A million-dollar beach house in Essex? Well, to be specific, this is Rockaway Beach, but the ZIP code lands it in an area that is commonly called Essex -- at least according to the post office. Still, it doesn't matter where this house is located, because with magnificent views of three waterways, including the Chesapeake Bay, from just about every room in the house, it's obviously the perfect spot. "Everything was built for this house with the view in mind," says Bob Rush, who along with his wife, Maryann, planned the home's construction from scratch.

A humbled and contrite Thomas L. Bromwell, who exercised extraordinary political power during almost a quarter-century in elected office, was sentenced yesterday to seven years in prison, ending a public corruption investigation that exposed how a local construction-firm executive spent years bribing the former state senator. Near the end of the two-hour sentencing hearing in the cavernous ceremonial courtroom at U.S. District Court in downtown Baltimore, the 58-year-old Baltimore County Democrat stood up and gripped the lectern.
