New Administrative Judge in Worcester County

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md.- Worcester County Circuit Court will be getting a new Administrative Judge in August after the retirement of a longtime judge. 

Judge Brian D. Shockley will take over on August 6 as the administrative judge for Worcester County after Judge Thomas C. Groton III announced his retirement after 34 years of service on the bench, according to Maryland Judiciary. 

Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera announced the switch today and said she is confident Judge Shockley will serve the people of Worcester County effectively.  

"I look forward to his contributions as a leader in this important capacity,” Chief Judge Barbera said.

Maryland Judiciary said Judge Shockley previously served Worcester County Circuit Court as an associate judge since 2011 and was the county's Assistant State's Attorney for three years in the late 90's.
