Baltimore County Zoning Resources
The Baltimore County government publishes a 70-page resource entitled "A Citizens Guide To Zoning" which introduces you to the different zoning classifications in MD. What's also amazing on this site is "My Neighborhood: Zoning," which allows you to type in your street addess and then receive a map showing the zoning classifications of the sorrounding areas.

Enforcement of Foreign Judgments
If you're interested in enforcing a judgment rendered in one state to another state, you may be interested in the following page from the Commercial Collection Agency Association. In Maryland, the authority for this action rests in Title 11, Subtitle 8 (11-801) of the Courts and Judicial Proceedings of the MD Annotated Code. Entitled "The Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act," the act is based on a 1964 Uniform Law of the same name. This Uniform Law was then incorporated, with a few changes, into the MD Code. (Thanks to Andy Dale for the suggestion).

Fedstats, one of the major sites which pulls together statistics gleaned by the federal government, also has a Maryland page which is worth looking at. This page provides general statistics on Maryland. What's nice about this page, though, is that you can slice and dice the data many different ways--by county, city, congressional district, state court districts, and federal judicial districts. Topic specific MD statistics can be found on this page.

Maryland Lab Law
Johns Hopkins Medicine has an interesting page on Maryland law relating to research scientists. The page excepts the relevant parts of the Code dealing with conducting research involving human subjects. As this page makes clear, MD law on this issue borrows heavily from the Federal Regulations on this topic.
