DEFENDANT IN COURT CASE HAD TEN THOUSAND GOOD REASONS TO SUPPORT AMY LORENZINI FOR JUDGE AND WRITE GLOWING ENDORSEMENT

LEONARDTOWN, MD—St. Mary’s County Circuit Court Judge Amy Lorenzini recently posted to her campaign website an endorsement for her bid to win a full term in the post that she was appointed to in 2022 by lame-duck Governor Larry Hogan.

The endorsement from Anna N. Cotton of Greenwood Lane in Leonardtown, Maryland, revealed that she had been on both sides of rulings by Lorenzini and found her to be fair but failed to reveal that the outcome of being a defendant ended with ten thousand bucks in her pocketbook after being in Lorenzini’s court.

The endorsement showed a nickname or typo of Cotton’s first name and was listed on Lorenzini’s campaign website as Aunna. In April, Lorenzini’s campaign made a critical typo on a mass cell phone text message when it incorrectly listed the Primary Election in Maryland as being held on Monday, May 14, 2024. The following day, Lorenzini sent another unsolicited text message with her TV ad apologizing for the typo and affirming that the correct date of the election was Tuesday, May 14, 2024.

Court records show that Cotton and her husband Eric were sued by a neighbor, David D. Snelling, in a civil lawsuit involving a dispute between the parties who live two houses apart on a residential street on the edge of Leonardtown, off Rt. 5 near Leonardtown Ford.

David Weigel of Dugan, McKissick, and Longmore represented Snelling in the case. Richard Steinmetz and Nivea Aamaira Ohri, both of Baldwin, Briscoe, and Steinmetz, represented the Cottons.

The litigation was filed on February 9, 2022, about five months before Amy Lorenzini was appointed to the open judgeship resulting from the retirement of Judge David Densford, who hit the mandatory retirement age of seventy.

Court records show the following: on May 25, 2023, jury instructions were issued, a Verdict Sheet was filled, a Notice of Recorded Judgement in the amount of $10,000 was recorded in favor of Cotton, the defendant in the case and against Snelling, who filed the action in the first place. On June 9, 2023, a request for garnishment of wages was filed in Circuit Court against Snelling, with his employer listed as the Naval System Command, Muse Road, Patuxent River, Md. Writ Garnishment of Wages was granted on June 14, 2023. Court records show that on June 30, 2023, a Satisfaction of Lien was filed, and on July 3, 2023, a Notice of Release was mailed to counsel with exhibits.

The following campaign finance report was revealed in January; the next filing is due on May 4, 2024. Be sure to check back as Lorenzini had a wing-dinger of a fundraiser after the last deadline.
