The Maryland attorney general's office plans to appeal a judge's preliminary injunction that prevents Gov. Martin O'Malley from enforcing his executive order allowing a union to represent home-based child care providers during negotiations for state subsidies. Yesterday, two Republican lawmakers, Sen. Allan H. Kittleman and Del. Michael D. Smigiel Sr. applauded the Friday action by Cecil County Circuit Judge Dexter M. Thompson Jr. The judge said the governor's Aug. 6 executive order, which covers residential day care providers who receive purchase-of-care vouchers from moderate-income parents, should have been handled through an executive branch regulation.

Score one for The Next Great Champ. A Los Angeles judge cleared the way for Fox TV's new boxing reality series to debut Sept. 7, refusing to grant a preliminary injunction sought by Mark Burnett and Jeffrey Katzenberg, producers of a rival NBC series, The Contender. Burnett and Katzenberg, whose series is scheduled to premiere in November, sought the injunction on the grounds that Fox had violated California boxing regulations in its rush to get Champ on-air before their show. While that was the core of their court case, the real fight was over the claim by producers and NBC that Fox stole the idea for its boxing series from them.

The Maryland Jockey Club said yesterday that it will continue to supply its signal to the TVG Network after a hearing in U.S. District Court in Baltimore ended with no decision being made by Judge William M. Nickerson. Attorneys for ODS Technologies, which does business as TVG, had planned to call jockey club president Joseph A. De Francis as a witness, but did not do so after the sides stipulated what De Francis was to testify. Jockey club attorneys on Thursday moved for Judge Nickerson to deny ODS' request for a preliminary injunction that would keep the races on TVG. ODS' attorney, D. Christopher Ohly, told the judge he would have a response to the jockey club's motion by Monday.

Maryland's highest court has decided to hear a case that challenges Carroll County's freeze on residential growth. It is the latest development in a legal battle in which a Carroll circuit judge granted developers temporary relief from the freeze. In September, the Maryland Court of Appeals will hear arguments from attorneys for the county and a real estate developer about a preliminary injunction issued by the lower court. In December, John W. Pfaff Builders asked the Circuit Court for the preliminary injunction to allow development plans to proceed despite the freeze.
