Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced the appointments of two judges to the state’s highest court.
Harford County Circuit Judge Angela Eaves has been appointed to the Maryland Court of Appeals. Eaves, who is the first Hispanic judge appointed to the court, would succeed Judge Robert McDonald upon his mandatory retirement later this month.
Hogan also announced Thursday the appointment of Judge Matthew Fader of Howard County to the Court of Appeals. Fader is the chief judge of the Court of Special Appeals, Maryland’s intermediate appellate court. He has been appointed to succeed Judge Joseph Getty upon his mandatory retirement in April.
The Republican governor also announced that Court of Special Appeals Judge E. Gregory Wells will serve as the new chief judge of that court.
In addition, Hogan appointed Montgomery County Circuit Judge Anne Albright to fill the seat that will open on the Court of Special Appeals with Fader’s departure.
Hogan’s office also announced four appointments to the District Court in Baltimore: Tameika M. Lunn-Exinor, an administrative law judge; Lydie Essama Glynn, the chief solicitor in the litigation and appeals division of the Baltimore City Solicitor’s Office; Ana De la Hoz Hernandez, of the public defender’s office in Baltimore; and Theresa C. Morse, an assistant attorney general and a former Anne Arundel County and Baltimore prosecutor.
