An administrative law judge has been chosen to fill a vacancy in the Baltimore City Circuit Court.
Anthony F. Vittoria was appointed by Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) to the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Timothy J. Doory.
Before the appointment, Vittoria worked as an administrative law judge with the Maryland Office of Administrative Hearings since December 2018.
He previously operated his own law firm in the city of Baltimore after working at the firms Ober|Kaler and Goodell, DeVries, Leech and Gray.
Vittoria is a graduate of the University of Virginia, The College of William and Mary, and the University of Virginia School of Law.
A resident of the city, Vittoria previously served as president and in other leadership positions at the Locust Point Civic Association.
“The appointment of qualified individuals to our justice system is paramount to upholding our responsibilities to the people of Maryland and the rule of law,” Hogan said in a statement. “I am confident that Judge Vittoria will make an excellent addition to the bench and serve the citizens of Baltimore City and the State of Maryland admirably.”
