Maryland winger trying to boot judge who ruled on gay marriage
A leading foe of same-sex marriage in the Maryland legislature is calling for the impeachment of the Baltimore judge who overturned a state law banning gay unions.
Del. Don Dwyer (R-Anne Arundel) introduced a resolution in the House Tuesday calling for Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Brooke Murdock to be removed from the bench.
The motion says that Murdock is incompetence and overstepped her legal power in overturning the law. In January Murdock ruled that the ban on gay marriage “cannot withstand constitutional challenge.”
…The impeachment motion was referred to a legislative committee. The Maryland legislature has not impeached a judge in more than a century.
