Earlier this month, Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. elevated the Honorable Albert Willis Northrop to the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County.
Judge Wills had been a District Court judge in P.G. County since Governor Parris N. Glendening appointed him on January 3, 2003. Prior to that, he was an Orphans’ Court judge in P.G. County from 1986 to 2002.
Judge Willls will succeed Judge James J. Lombardi, who retired in March 2006. He will serve until November 2008, when he will stand for election to a full 15-year term.
