Hon. Joseph Murphy (Ret.) Plays Key Role in Crafting Justice Reinvestment Act

STSW member and retired Court of Appeals Judge Joe Murphy was rewarded for his hard work last summer as the Maryland General Assembly passed the proposed Justice Reinvestment Act this week. Judge Murphy devoted significant time as a member of a counsel devoted to making recommendations for this historic legislation. Most of the counsel's recommendations were enacted with strong bi-partisan support in both the Maryland House (122-19) and Senate (46-0). Governor Hogan is expected to sign the bill.
