James C. Cawood Jr. American Inn of Court

In June, the James C. Cawood Jr. American Inn of Court in Annapolis, Maryland, held a well-attended virtual joint meeting with the Anne Arundel Bar Association (AABA) that included a presentation by Judge Laura Ripken, administrative judge for Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County. Pupillage group leader and Cawood Inn Past President John K. Gardner, Esquire, and AABA President Brian Marsh, Esquire, co-moderated the event.

In a question-and-answer format, Ripken discussed the details of the new Anne Arundel County Circuit Court’s COVID-19 Response Plan for the Progressive Resumption of Full Function of Judiciary Operations.
She explained the safety measures adopted by the court for resuming court business and the four case management plans (criminal, family law, juvenile, and civil) that will apply as the court moves back toward full operation.
