Maryland Judiciary names new Chief Information Officer

ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Maryland Judiciary has named Robert “Bob” Bruchalski as Chief Information Officer and Assistant Administrator for Judicial Information Systems today. Bruchalski, a 19-year veteran of the Judiciary, most recently served as director of Judicial Information Systems.

“As a valuable member of JIS’ leadership team for nearly two decades, Bob has been instrumental in helping to lead the Judiciary’s information technology strategic development and operational planning,” said State Court Administrator Pamela Harris. “I appreciate his focus, thoughtfulness, and his willingness to bring our IT systems to the next level.”

The Judicial Information Systems IT systems serve nearly 4,500 Judiciary users throughout the state of Maryland.

“I believe deeply in the importance of the mission of the Maryland Judiciary and I am proud to support it,” said Bruchalski. “I’m honored to have been chosen as the CIO, and look forward to continuing working with a group I greatly admire, the talented men and women who make up the Judicial Information Systems team.”

Prior to joining the Judiciary, Bruchalski worked with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, where he oversaw the development of all automated systems.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
