SECTION 7-A
Vacancies or changes in judges; power of judge out of office
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 2
§ 7-a. Vacancies or changes in judges; power of judge out of office. A
civil or criminal action or special proceeding in a court of record is
not discontinued by a vacancy or change in the judges of the court or by
the re-election or re-appointment of a judge, but it must be continued,
heard and determined by the court as constituted at the time of the
hearing or determination. After a judge is out of office, he may settle
a transcript or statement for a record on appeal or make any return of
proceedings had before him while he was in office, and may be compelled
so to do by the court in which the action or special proceeding is
pending.
