RULE 20-103. ADMINISTRATION OF MDEC
(a) General Authority of State Court Administrator. Subject to supervision by the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, the State Court Administrator shall be responsible for the administration of the MDEC system and shall implement the procedures established by the Rules in this Title.
(b) Policies and Procedures.
(1) Authority to Adopt. The State Court Administrator shall adopt policies and procedures that are necessary or useful for the proper and efficient implementation of the MDEC System and consistent with the Rules in this Title, other provisions in the Maryland Rules that are not superseded by the Rules in this Title, and other applicable law. The policies and procedures may include:
(A) examples of deficiencies in submissions that the State Court Administrator has determined constitute a material violation of the Rules in Title 20 or an applicable policy or procedure and justify the issuance of a deficiency notice under Rule 20-203 (d);
Committee note: The examples of deficiencies listed by the State Court Administrator are not intended (1) to be an exclusive or exhaustive list of deficiencies justifying the issuance of a deficiency notice, or (2) to preclude a judge from determining that the submission does not materially violate a Rule in Title 20 or an applicable policy or procedure. They are intended, however, to require the clerk to issue a deficiency notice when the submission is deficient in a manner listed by the State Court Administrator. See Rule 20-201(d).
(B) with the approval of the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, the approval of pilot projects and programs in one or more courts to test the fiscal and operational efficacy of those projects or programs; and,
(C) with the approval of the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, any provision necessary or useful with respect to procedure for the filing and processing of submissions under Code, Real Property Article, § 8-401, nonpayment of rent, as defined by the State Court Administrator.
(2) Publication of Policies and Procedures. Policies and procedures adopted by the State Court Administrator that affect the use of the MDEC system by judicial personnel, attorneys, or members of the public shall be posted on the Judiciary website and, upon written request, shall be made available in paper form by the State Court Administrator.
