Maryland Judiciary

From dKosopedia

Maryland’s court of last resort is the court of appeals, made up of a chief judge and six other justices.

The state’s intermediate appellate court is called the court of special appeals and is composed of a chief judge and 12 additional justices. The judges of both courts are initially appointed by the governor with the consent of the senate and must be confirmed in office by voters within two years of appointment. The judges serve 10-year terms.

The major trial courts of Maryland are the circuit courts of the counties and of the city of Baltimore. Those courts include a total of 116 judges, who serve 15-year terms.
