– The Baltimore City Healthcare Mutual Aid system has been announced by Mayor Sheila Dixon. Eleven area hospitals, including the University of Maryland Medical Center, have agreed to share staff and resources during an emergency, such as a major hurricane or terrorist attack. The plan calls for the Health Department and the Office of Emergency Management to act as coordinators and gives participating hospitals access to up-to-date information from the city’s emergency management center. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, which helped to develop the plan, participated in the news conference.

– Gov. Martin O’Malley will name at least three of seven judges on the Maryland Court of Appeals over the next 14 months because of the court’s mandatory retirement age of 70. The openings mean that O’Malley will have greater say than recent governors on who gets to decide high-profile questions. "The change of three is likely to have a profound impact," said William Reynolds, JD, professor at the School of Law.
