Order of the Court: 200 Years of the Maryland Court of Appeals
Patrick McGrath, then press secretary to acting Governor Blair Lee III, hosts this documentary about the Maryland Court of Appeals, its history, and its impact on Maryland society. The program begins with footage of Chief Justice Warren Burger commemorating the 200th anniversary of the court during a speech in Annapolis. McGrath discusses landmark cases with Robert C. Murray, Chief Judge of the Maryland Court of Appeals; William Reynolds of the University of Maryland Law School; and Bruce Bereano, then an aide to the Maryland Senate president. Neal M. Janey, of the Monumental City Bar Association, discusses the 1936 case, University of Maryland v. Donald G. Murray, when the Court of Appeals upheld a lower court decision, effectively ending segregation at the university.
