Ferris v. State (1999)
Petitioner Peter Michael Ferris appeals the denial of his motion to suppress evidence seized by the police. Because the police officer in this case effected a seizure not premised upon the reasonable, articulable suspicion required under the Fourth Amendment, we shall hold that the Circuit Court for Washington County erred in denying Ferris's motion to suppress.
Court: Court of Appeals of Maryland Docket: 127, Sept. Term, 1997
This is an action for judicial review of an adjudicatory administrative decision terminating the employment of a state governmental employee.

The Court of Special Appeals, in an unreported opinion, affirmed. Both courts relied upon [...]

Rohrbeck v. Rohrbeck (1989)
This case turns on whether the Circuit Court for Montgomery County entered a judgment a final, appealable judgment on July 13, 1988. It has a broader import than that, however, and requires an examination of the nature and function of a device unknown to our courts before 1985 the Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). The precise issue before us, and the answer to it, will become more clear if we begin with a discussion of this recent addition to our jurisprudence.

Kushell v. DNR (2005)In this case we consider whether Maryland tax liability under § 8-716(c)(1)(iv) of the State Boat Act for "[t]he possession within the State of a vessel purchased outside the State to be used principally in the State" requires that the out-of-state purchase have been made with an intent to use the vessel principally in Maryland.
