Charge Dismissed Against Former Governor’s Campaign Manager

A Baltimore City Circuit Court judge on Thursday threw out a second major charge in the conspiracy case against former Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich’s (R) campaign manager in his 2010 bid to retake the governor’s mansion.

Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill ruled that state prosecutors had not elicited enough evidence for a jury to weigh if Paul E. Schurick had obstructed justice in a criminal probe of whether Schurick had ordered Election Day robo-calls to suppress black voter turnout.
