From the Office of Governor Larry Hogan:
Governor Larry Hogan today swore in Judge Angela M. Eaves to serve on the Maryland Court of Appeals—the first Hispanic ever to serve on the state’s highest court.
“Judge Eaves is a distinguished jurist who brings to the Court of Appeals a proven track record of fairness and impartiality, as well as a passionate commitment to public service,” said Governor Hogan. “This is an historic day as we swear in the first Hispanic to serve on our highest court, and I want to congratulate Judge Eaves and her family.”
About Judge Angela M. Eaves. Most recently the administrative judge for the Harford County Circuit Court, Judge Eaves succeeds Judge Robert N. McDonald, who reached his mandatory retirement in February. Eaves, whose mother is Panamanian and whose father is African American, is the first Hispanic appointed to Maryland’s appellate courts.
Since 2007, Eaves has served on the Harford County Circuit Court. Prior to her appointment to the Circuit Court, she served for seven years as an associate judge of the District Court for Harford County. Prior to her judicial service, Eaves was an assistant attorney general with the Office of the Attorney General, where she handled cases in the Correctional Litigation Division and on behalf of the Department of Human Resources. Earlier in her career, she was a staff attorney with the Maryland Legal Aid Bureau and an assistant city attorney for the City of Dallas. She received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Public Affairs, and a J.D. from the University of Texas.
Eaves is also the first Harford County resident appointed to the Court of Appeals in more than 100 years.

She looks black to me. Oh, wait she is black/hispanic. Interesting how the focus emphasizes the hispanic and downplays the black.
Right, and why do white people always smell like wet dogs? Nasty.
I’d rather smell like a wet dog than like the turd that you are…
Sue Rice says
Unnecessary remark as she was the first Hispanic. If you read her background, it appears she’s well qualified, regardless of race. When will we stop making these remarks?
This is just another mistake made by Hogan. I have long said that Angela Eaves is a disease. She has infected the courts with unconstitutional acts and is clearly prejudicial against white males. She has no business sitting on any bench as a court administrator and will continue to violate the real law of this land with her illegal and unconstitutional acts. She is a criminal and a TRAITOR against both the US and State Constitutions. She should be removed from any governmental office and placed in jail for 5 years for her past conduct. If you are white, you will be persecuted by this piece of trash. Hogan has once again proven that he is a moron and will NOT proceed in any type of political office on a Federal level. This choice really saddens me because with this piece of garbage sitting on a higher court the people of Maryland will suffer.
These days it’s about boxes that get checked off. She’s qualified and checks three boxes.
