The Court of Special Appeals is Maryland’s intermediate appellate court. Created in 1966, unless otherwise provided by law, it considers any reviewable judgment, decree, order, or other action of the circuit and orphans’ courts. Judges sitting on the Court of Special Appeals generally hear and decide cases in panels of three. In some instances, however, all 15 judges sit en banc to hear the case.
