Nobody asked me, but the major renovation of Baltimore’s downtown arena, now named CFG Bank Arena, affirms what many said or had to admit after years of debate: There’s no better location for this venue than “where it’s been at” since 1962. Nobody asked me, but the request by Marilyn Mosby’s lawyers to move her federal trial out of Baltimore sounds like desperation, and I doubt it will work. A judge would only agree to a change of venue in the unlikely event that she could not find 12 potential jurors (plus alternates) who affirm that they can consider evidence fairly. However futile, the motion for a change will give Mosby’s lawyers, in voir dire, a better feel for jurors’ attitudes, and that’s more than what attorneys might get in more routine cases.
