Court of Appeals Bids Farewell to Judge Clayton Greene, Jr.

The Court of Appeals ended its arguments on Friday, the last of the September 2018 Term, by congratulating Judge Clayton Greene, Jr. on his forthcoming retirement from the court at the end of this month. As Chief Judge Barbera’s comments reflect, Judge Greene will continue to sit by designation on the Court of Special Appeals and the Court of Appeals.

In a video posted to its oral argument page, each of the court’s six other judges took turns making comments in his honor, followed by remarks from Judge Greene himself.

Judge Greene’s retirement opens a vacancy for Governor Larry Hogan to fill from the 5th Appellate Judicial Circuit (Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles & St. Mary’s Counties). He retires 19 months shy of his 70th birthday, at which point retirement would have been mandatory. Judge Robert McDonald will become the Court’s senior associate judge.
