New Circuit Court Judges in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County

As he is walking out the door, soon to be former Governor Ehrlich appointed to the Baltimore City Circuit Court bench George L. Russell, III and Pamela J. White. I believe Judge Russell was with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Before that, he worked for Peter Angelos’ office. Judge Russell’s father, George L. Russell, Jr. is a legendary Maryland attorney. He was Maryland’s first African-American to be a Circuit Court judge as well as the first African-American on the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

Judge White is a former Maryland State Bar Association president who was a partner at Ober-Kaler, where the Governor himself once worked.

Governor Ehrlich also appointed A. Michael Chapdelaine to the bench in Prince George’s County. I am told that Judge Chapdelaine was a well liked domestic relations master in Prince George’s Circuit Court. Prior to becoming a master, he was an lawyer in Bowie concentrating his practice on family law.
