MSBA President Judge Keith R. Truffer presided over the fictitious “Trial of Al Capone” for the notorious gangster’s alleged role in the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at the Inscape Theatre on the Greenspring Campus of Stevenson University.

The all-star cast included, among many others, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh as George “Bugs” Moran”, T.J. Smith, Press Secretary to Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, as Eliot Ness, Federal Public Defender for the District of Maryland James Wyda, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur, and Ronald M. Shapiro in the role of Alphonse Capone.

All proceeds from the production, penned by Paul Mark Sandler, went to benefit the Maryland Access to Justice Commission in support of its mission of uniting leaders to drive systemic reforms and innovations to make the civil justice system more accessible, user-friendly, and fair for all Marylanders.
