ANNAPOLIS, Md.- Gov. Martin O'Malley has appointed former Maryland congressman Frank Kratovil Jr. to the District Court for Queen Anne's County.

O'Malley announced the appointment on Wednesday to fill a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge John T. Clark III.

"I am honored to appoint Frank Kratovil to the Queen Anne's County District Court," O'Malley said.  "His strong work ethic, dedication to justice, and years of experience will make him an excellent judge."

Kratovil, a Democrat, represented Maryland's 1st Congressional District, which includes all of the Eastern Shore, from 2009 to 2011. He was defeated in 2010 by then-state Republican Sen. Andy Harris.

Kratovil was state's attorney for Queen Anne's County from 2002 until 2009. Kratovil graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1994.

Kratovil was nominated by the Trial Courts Judicial Nominating Commission. More information about the nominating commissions can be found at http://www.gov.state.md.us/executiveorders/01.01.2008.04eo.pdf.
