Hogan appoints 2 to Prince George’s bench

judge-gavelGov. Larry Hogan appointed an assistant attorney general and a family magistrate to fill two vacancies on the Prince George’s County Circuit Court bench.

Peter K. Killough has been with the Maryland Office of the Attorney General since 2009 and Judy Lynn Woodall has been a magistrate with the court since 2002, according to a news release from the governor’s office Wednesday.

“After a careful and thorough vetting process, I am confident that Peter Killough and Judy Woodall are the most qualified individuals for these positions,” Hogan said in a prepared statement. “They have each shown a dedication and commitment to the practice of law, and I trust that they will honorably serve the citizens of Prince George’s County.”

Killough is the director of the Maryland Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and was previously principal counsel for the People’s Insurance Counsel Division.

Woodall serves as an adjunct professor at Howard University School of Law, where she teaches a family law practice course. She previously worked as a prosecutor in Prince George’s County.
