On Wednesday afternoon, Pugh's lawyer Steve Silverman addressed the media and announced a press conference on her standing scheduled for Thursday at his offices in Downtown Baltimore. The firm confirmed the press conference would occur at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in a memo headlined, "Mayor Catherine Pugh: Important Announcement."


WMAR-2 News was at the mayor's Ashburton home. Silverman was asked if there was a decision made, but he would not confirm anything regarding Pugh's future at that moment.

Silverman also asked the media to consider not coming to her Ashburton home on Thursday.

It is unknown what time the press conference will happen.

A prayer vigil has been scheduled for Mayor Pugh, and groups are outside of her home uplifting her with support.
