. In 1984, the Maryland Rules were revised to merge Law and Equity into Civil. The Washington County Circuit Court Clerk at the time chose to keep the two series separate. He changed Law Papers to Civil Papers and Equity Papers to Civil Special Proceedings. In each of these series the case numbers continued to be assigned sequentially with no disruption caused by the change in name. In order to find Equity Papers/Civil Special Proceedings from 07/06/1984 or later, please see Civil Papers at MSA T1230
. Abstracts are available in SC 6016, the Dorinda Shepley Collection
