Defending the Judge

The Maryland State Bar Association came to the defense of Circuit Judge Brooke Murdock yesterday. Murdock took fire from Republican Del. Don Dwyer (Anne Arundel) after she issued the ruling last week that found Maryland's ban on same-sex marriage discriminatory and unconstitutional.

Dwyer sought advice on how to bring impeachment charges against the Baltimore judge earlier this week. Yesterday, he said he would continue to pursue that course.

The bar association issued a statement saying "Calls for impeachment of the Judge are not appropriate and indicate some misunderstanding of our system of law."
