Judge Arthur Publishes His First Opinion

Court of Special Appeals Judge (and former Maryland Appellate Blog editor) Kevin Arthur has published his first opinion: White v. Register of Wills, — Md. App. — (May 1, 2014). It comes less than six weeks after he joined the Court. It’s as concise and well-written as we here at the Maryland Appellate Blog expected.

      The “why” is an interesting curiosity. I suspect the lack of protection may for judicial whistleblowers may stem from a perceived adverse impact on the perception of neutrality. (I have not researched the question). Does the “why” matter, though? If, as you suggest, a more general application is needed, the change should come from the General Assembly, shouldn’t it?
