Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND WORLD - —Jes­sica An­der­son

Gov. Larry Ho­gan’s of­fice an­nounced three ju­di­cial ap­point­ments Thurs­day to the District Court in Bal­ti­more. Ho­gan named Katie O’Hara, Michael Stud­dard, and Ni­cole Tay­lor af­ter re­view­ing nom­i­nees from the ju­di­cial nom­i­nat­ing com­mis­sion for Bal­ti­more, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the gov­er­nor’s of­fice. The ap­pointees “each pos­sess an ex­ten­sive le­gal back­ground and have ex­hib­ited in­tegrity and a com­mit­ment to jus­tice through­out their ca­reers,” Ho­gan said in a state­ment. O’Hara pre­vi­ously worked as a city prose­cu­tor and is now as a hear­ing of­fi­cer for the Bal­ti­more City En­vi­ron­men­tal Con­trol Board. Stud­dard is a city prose­cu­tor and has worked for the city state’s at­tor­ney’s of­fice for more than two decades. Tay­lor is a part­ner at the Law Of­fices of Tay­lor & Tay­lor and pre­vi­ously worked as an as­sis­tant pub­lic de­fender, serv­ing as an at­tor­ney ad­viser for the Drug En­force­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tion, and worked for the firms of Ni­cole R. Eger­ton, Franklin and Prokopik and Ty­d­ings & Rosen­berg. O’Hara, Stud­dard and Tay­lor were among 15 nom­i­nees con­sid­ered by the nom­i­nat­ing com­mis­sion, which in­ter­viewed and voted on can­di­dates, and sub­mit­ted the names to the gov­er­nor. The new ap­point­ments will fill va­can­cies left by Jamey H. Hue­ston, Miriam B. Hutchins and Nathan Braver­man.
