"In home estimate. It is 5 11. In a major development in campaign 2022 this afternoon, Maryland's Court of Appeals, that is the state's highest court, has upheld a lower court ruling, saying that mail in ballots statewide can be counted early. Dan Cox, a Republican state delegate who's running for governor had appealed to the state's highest court to stop the elections boards from counting those ballots before election day. Well, joining us live down double DTO piece Kate Ryan, who's been covering this in K to first help us understand here. How did this end up before the Court of Appeals in the first place? Well, as John explained, Dan Cox had argued that Maryland law bars election sports from counting mail in ballots until two days after the election, both in the primary and general elections. So he took the case to court in Montgomery county and the judge in that court found, you know what? There's enough concern about the surge in the number of ballots expected that the board of elections should be granted permission this one time to count early to change that Maryland state law in effect. And that's important because as of this week, more than 500,000 mail in ballot requests have been made, statewide. That's a lot of mail in ballots to process. But Cox appealed that to the next level, took it to the court of special appeals who said, no, the circuit court was correct. And then he took it to the state appeals court, which is John pointed out, is the Supreme Court of Maryland for all intensive purposes. At this point, nobody is started counted Saturday counting mail in ballots yet. And it's still going to make life easier for everything for a lot of people when they do, right? That's correct. Again, what they're saying is we just want to be able to process them as we get them. Montgomery county, the largest county in the state, who had the most mail in ballots previously. Won't start counting until October 15th, and we should emphasize they're not going to report the results. They simply said we need time to process, hang on to these. And that will save us massive amounts of time post election day. So then why did Cox argue so strenuous strenuously against county these ballots early? His position was that it's unconstitutional that you're asking the court to do what the legislature should be doing. Maryland law is very clear. It does say, sorry, you can't start counting until two days after election day. So he really argued that that had to be upheld and his attorney today told the judges the same thing, saying, look, you can't be doing the job of lawmakers. You would be usurping fancy legal word for taking up somebody else's governmental function by doing that. And as we wrap here, it is important to note that no matter how many ballots are counted ahead of time, we're not going to know until all the polls close on election night. Absolutely. It does not change how results are reported out. That's after the polls close, and once they're sent to the state board of elections, which then reports the results out to you and me, and it does not change the way you, the voter, go to the polls, and have your vote counted. All right, very good. Thanks so much, Kate. Kate Ryan. Sports is next. 5 14

"Ten O three, welcome to Wednesday, August 31st, 2022, what a beauty here today, sunny and breezy. We've got 74° right now as we stretch into the mid 80s today. Good morning, I'm Deborah Feinstein. And I'm Mark Lewis with the top local stories we're following this hour. We've learned this morning that Maryland's attorney general could appeal a decision for a beltway sniper Lee Boyd Malvo to be re sentenced. Last week, the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled that malvo should get a new sentence since he was a juvenile at the time of the shootings. It's a story you're hearing first on WTO. Maryland attorney general Brian frost is considering asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the order by Maryland's highest court, but a spokesperson tells WTO P no decisions been made yet. Friday, Maryland's Court of Appeals ruled Lee mount must be resentenced for his 6 Maryland convictions. Virginia prosecutors made their case to the Supreme Court for the constitutionality of four life sentences without the possibility of parole, but Virginia's case was dismissed after then governor Ralph northam signed a new law creating the possibility of parole for juvenile offenders serving 20 years to life. Neil Logan stained news. The other beltway sniper John Muhammad was executed in 2009, ten people were killed in those attacks, which happened nearly 20 years ago. Under Virginia law, police need to notify a public school system if a school employees arrested for certain offenses. But one local lawmaker says that doesn't go far enough. Sure, police can notify a school system, but under current law, the school system isn't required to verify that it received the notification, delegate Vivian watts tells WTO, lawmakers may try to change that. If they haven't received it, unfortunately, it doesn't do the purpose of that immediate notification. It follows the discovery that a fairfax county public schools counselor remained on the job after being convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution because police attempts to reach the superintendent were sent to email addresses that didn't work. It's just really regrettable that this series of events occurred. Nick I Nelly doubled news. In Arlington teenager, out for a run last weekend, was stabbed in seriously hurt. Now he's asking for help in finding the attacker. 17 year old max was running the custis trail Saturday night when a man lunged at him and stabbed him in the side. You just had this really angry kind of hateful look on his face. Initially, max didn't realize he'd been stabbed. I didn't feel anything at first, which was just kind of crazy. But he knew he needed to run. When I was running away and I actually looked down and saw my hand and was covered in blood. The knife went through his spleen into his diaphragm, luckily he is doing well, but he wants to make sure the man who stabbed him doesn't attack anyone else. He's asking those who live near the custis trail in Washington boulevard to check your cameras Saturday night to see if you have a picture of his attacker for police. Michelle Morello, WTO P news. A year after coming out of retirement to become U.S. capitol police chief, Tom manger says there have been improvements, but more changes are needed. The former police chief of fairfax in Montgomery county who took the helm of capital police last July says officers are better able to respond to threats today compared to last year. And intelligence handling is better. Not only are we gathering information much better than we did, but we're disseminating it the way it should be disseminated. Unfinished businesses staffing with capitol police about 200 officers below the authorized level, and the chief who introduced body worn cameras in Montgomery county hopes to start a pilot program on Capitol Hill. This will just show the community just how challenging this job can be and how good my cops are at doing it. Particularly on WTO P news. Stay with us coming up on WTO after traffic and weather. What MS 13 called rent payments was really extortions. I'm John dome and it's ten O 7

"Only trains himself at asking questions. What? We asked our patrons. We asked the people who know us best. What questions they might have. And there was a fair amount. So why don't we get to it? So step one, I love you wrote it down, Andrew is just point of the show, which I love to imagine a bunch of people responded to your query by just being like, yeah, what is the point of this show? Longtime listener, first time caller, what do you say you do here? So what we do here is we try and break down stories that are in the news that have a legal component, I'm the lawyer and I try and translate that from legalese into real English and you are the real human that can tell me if I'm doing my job correctly or not. We've evolved a little bit since planning the show in August of 2016, which was slightly different. Andrew used to be a devoted institutionalist and now he's like 60% that, I think. I think that's right. So yes, the show absolutely has a political perspective. We are left of center in some cases very left of center and proud of it. I consider myself a progressive, but yeah. I consider myself a progressive, absolutely. So that's what you're gonna get. Do you always get political content? Absolutely not. And we wouldn't want you to always get political content. You will in this deep dive because we are recording this at a time that is still just a couple of days out from the uvalde school shooting. And we're trying to empower our listeners to understand and do something about what happened in terms of building a better future. But it's not always we cover any story that's out there and interesting that has a legal component to it that maybe the mainstream press is not exactly getting right. Yeah, and you know on the topic of this very broad, it's almost like our bios and our shows bio. You say you're the lawyer, but once you briefly, like an outline of what that means, what's your lawyerly past? Okay, so not to self promote. I am a graduate of Harvard Law School class in 1997. I have never heard you mention that before. I know. One year behind Ted Cruz, which was not listed on this list, but when you hear references to buddy, Ted Cruz, that's where that comes from. That is a good one. Graduated from law school went to clerk for the Maryland Court of Appeals, which is a state Supreme Court left the clerkship went to Covington and burling, which is one of the now one of the largest law firms in the world. You'll hear a little bit more on that, put a pin in that for later. As long as we're doing all of my habits here. And put a pin in it, yeah. In 2015, I left the world of big law. I was a partner at another firm called sacrament spader, and I left that world to start my own law firm and do this, which began, as we said in August of 2016. So I've traveled the legal world rather extensively. I'm a civil lawyer I've never been a prosecutor or a public defender or criminal defense attorney. It does not stop me from having opinions on those things. And I try and bracket where something comes from my direct experience versus where it comes from what is hopefully an informed legal perspective, but maybe not necessarily within the areas in which I practice. How about you, Thomas? Oh, no, who cares? I could interview you for hours, but we got 20 of these things to get through. But I think it's important to establish for new listeners kind of the expertise of the show and where that comes from and what you're not unlike a lot of popular media Internet stuff these days, you're not just some guy. A lot of I'm just some guy, but I think a lot of people in this country in this environment get their news, their commentary, their whatever, their breakdowns from just some guy. And I think it's important to note that you're bringing much more than that to bear. Let's go to the next one. Lots of folks want to know who does the introductory music, which is amazing. And who did the voice-over for don't take legal advice from a podcast? I wrote and recorded the intro music. It's been long enough that I feel like I could do a way better job now, but it's okay. So it's there, people like it's fine. So yeah, no, I write the music for all my shows. And Lydia is the lovely voice-over that I love so much. That don't take legal advice from a podcast. We'll live forever, even though we rerecorded part of that for better sound purposes and for changing. I think we changed a few of the things, but that don't take legal advice from a podcast. That take is gold. You don't change perfection. And that is, you were beautiful and lovely wife Lydia and mother of your two children. That's the one. Oh, did I not say my wife, Lydia? Yeah. Oh, sorry. That's who she assuming I said that. Yeah, sorry about that. Next up, Thomas, what is T three BE? Thomas second chance law firm. I mean, we originally named it Thomas takes the bar exam. You know what? I think we need to give credit to because I believe Eli, bosnic, another item on this list. Originally came up with the idea, at least in some form, or we just both came up with it at the same time and then he said it was his idea. I don't remember. Something like that. I think it's that one. Yeah. But yeah, no, the idea, and I think it started not immediately on the show, but within ten episodes, 20 episodes, it was early on, I think, right? To try out have the lay person, try to take a bar exam question, and also the point was to illustrate where the law may or may not be just something a reasonable person would guess, you know? Oftentimes I'll phrase it that way is I'm just picking kind of the reasonable answer. Here's how I would hope things would work. And it's right a lot of the time. Well, I shouldn't say a lot because my score is like 50%, but it's right a chunk of the time. And other times it's more complicated so it's hard to even know what that answer is. And that's the challenge. But that eventually was a listener suggested to be abbreviated T three B 8 BE because it's Thomas takes the bar exam and we thought T three BE sounds nice. I love it. And then the second chance law firm, what happened? We noticed a pattern that I was very often able to narrow it down to two answers and then whether I'd pick the right one from there was a question that didn't always happen. And so the joke became that I'm going to open up my own law firm and I can guarantee you that I will get you the correct legal answer half the time or at least with two tries. Like within two tries, I will provide great legal service to.
