Hereford High School parents who are upset about plans to change the school schedule throughout the county next year have filed a complaint in Circuit Court, seeking a temporary restraining order. The parents had filed a legal petition with the Baltimore County school board last month, requesting to keep the school's current schedule. They said in a press release Wednesday that they are seeking the restraining order because the school board has not overturned Superintendent Dallas Dance's decision and because classes are currently being scheduled for next year.

A temporary restraining order that blocked the scheduled closure of the Ev-Mar Mobile Home Park in Savage on Wednesday is scheduled for a hearing in Howard County Circuit Court today. Lawyers for the owners of the 6.8-acre park, on Gorman Road near U.S. 1, gave notice 13 months ago that the park would close June 1 to prepare the land for redevelopment, but seven families living there engaged Civil Justice Inc., a public interest law firm, to argue that the closure violates Maryland laws and that their evictions are in retaliation for residents' opposing a zoning change on the land.

Baltimore is wasting about $400,000 every month it does not install a new phone system, a lawyer for Comptroller Joan M. Pratt argued in court Thursday. But the mayor's lawyers argued that Pratt has no legal right to sue the city because she is a city officer. Pratt and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake have been sparring for months over who should upgrade the city's phone system, leading to a war of words, an investigation by the city's inspector general and now a court battle. "The city is throwing money down the drain," said Pratt's attorney, Charles G. Bernstein, a former city judge who works for Orioles owner Peter Angelos' law firm.
