As authorities ended a frantic week of mail-bomb investigations in the Deep South, another device exploded here Friday, injuring a judge, the third attack on court officials in seven days. Washington County Circuit Judge John Printz Corderman, 47, was taken to a hospital, suffering from wounds to his groin and fingers after he opened a brown paper-wrapped package bomb that was left on the doorstep of his third-floor apartment in downtown Hagerstown.

A bomb blew up a van in the parking lot of a shopping mall Monday, killing five people and shaking homes for blocks. The 6 p.m. explosion in the parking lot of the Middlesex Shopping Center blew the van's glove compartment a half-mile away, Police Officer J. L. Taylor said. "Investigators found some explosive material around the car," said Baltimore County Police Capt. Brian Uppercue. "They know it wasn't a gas-tank explosion."

A judge injured by a bomb mailed to his home last week was well enough to leave Washington County Hospital on Christmas Day, but his destination was kept secret. Judge John Corderman, 47, was discharged under tight security after surgical removal of shrapnel from his abdomen was determined to be successful, officials said. "We do not know where the judge went," said Sheran White of the Hagerstown, Md., facility. "He said he would grant no interviews, at least today."

The package bomb that exploded in the hands of a Hagerstown, Md., judge is probably the work of a "copycat" who is not connected to those who sent four bombs from Georgia within the last two weeks, killing two people, federal officials said Saturday. The latest bombing victim, Washington County Circuit Court Judge John P. Corderman, 47, remained in stable condition and under armed guard at a local hospital Saturday after a pipe bomb exploded Friday afternoon at his apartment.
