The Honorable Stuart R. Berger Appointed to Maryland Court of Special Appeals

The Honorable Stuart R. Berger was appointed to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals by Governor O’Malley on December 22, 2011, and has actively served in that capacity since January 25, 2012.  This is good news for Maryland.

Prior to the appointment, Judge Berger served as an Associate Judge in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City from December 21, 1998 until January 25, 2012.  There, Judge Berger regularly presided over civil motions hearings and the criminal docket.  Judge Berger served as the Circuit Representative for the Circuit Court for Baltimore City in the Conference of Circuit Judges from 2006 until 2012.

Judge Berger will make a great addition to the Court of Special Appeals.  In addition to his efficient management of the docket, lawyers who were fortunate enough to practice before Judge Berger in the circuit court can attest to his reputation as a truly impartial, intellectually honest scholar.  The Court of Special Appeals is lucky to have him.
