Judge denies new referendum bid
A Montgomery County judge has rejected efforts to revive a pair of referendums that had been rejected because of the way thousands of citizens signed their names.
Montgomery Circuit Court judge Robert A. Greenberg on Friday denied an appeal by a group opposed to a recently passed ambulance fee. Greenberg ordered that their referendum not be placed on the November ballot.
Greenberg noted that Maryland's highest court had ruled that that petition gatherers must follow the letter of state law.
"This court is obliged to follow that command," Greenberg wrote.
