Kent County Verdicts and Settlements

In 2010, there were about 1,300 new cases filed in the Kent County Circuit Court (compare this to the nearly 58,000 filed in Baltimore City). Of those 1,300 cases, about five were for automobile accidents, and 12 were for other types of personal injury. The District Court for Kent County had about 6,100 new cases filed in 2010, with just over 4,000 filed automobile accident cases.

Because there are so few cases that go to jury trial in Kent County, it is difficult to get a handle on any verdict patterns. Certainly, Kent County can be somewhat conservative from a plaintiff’s perspective; however, jurors are usually fair, especially when judging someone who has also lived in Kent County for a good period of time.

Chestertown Judges

There is one judge in the Circuit Court, County Administrative Judge Paul M. Bowen, who has been presiding since 2009. There is also only one judge in the District Court, John E. Nunn, III.
