O'Malley swears in new appeals judge

By Washington Post editors

Gov. Martin O'Malley has sworn in Maryland's first African-American woman appellate judge.

Judge Michele Hotten is now a member of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, the state's intermediate appellate court.

She will represent the court's Fourth Appellate Circuit for Prince George's County.

Hotten fills a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge James Salmon.

She has been an associate judge for Prince George's County Circuit Court for 15 years.
