- Some restaurants, libraries, and other businesses are slowly bringing back the phone booth, often without a phone itself. Instead, users have a private place to talk on their cell phone. The Thurgood Marshall Law Library in the School of Law has eight British-style phone booths, four with conventional phones and four dedicated to wireless calls. David Grahek, associate director, Thurgood Marshall Law Library, is quoted.

- Walter Arvinger, convicted for a murder he did not commit, returned home to his family in Baltimore after 35 years in prison. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. commuted his life sentence as a result of the efforts by Professor Michael A. Millemann and about 20 students from the School's Clinical Law Office. Arvinger was greeted by his son, grandchildren, and his 105-year-old grandmother.

- The trial next month of two men accused of slashing the throats of three Mexican children may be delayed as city prosecutors question whether the men's attorneys are working too closely together. Legal experts say that sharing office space and working together in past cases do not amount to a conflict of interest. Many defense attorneys "work side by side but can draw a clear line" to avoid conflicts," says Professor Condlin. Professor Colbert, "There would have to be something shown that the interest of a lawyer's client would not be well-served by that lawyer's mixed or ambiguous relationship with another client."

- Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. commuted the life sentences of two convicted murderers in a series of orders that marked the most expansive use of clemency powers by any Maryland governor in more than a decade. The attorney for Walter Arvinger, Professor Michael A. Millemann says he was delighted by Ehrlich's grant of clemency for Arvinger, "who never should have been convicted in the first place," but also because the grants reaffirmed an executive power that had fallen into disuse. Nearly 20 students from the School's Clinical Law Office worked on the case.

- Last spring, inmate Ifeanyi Iko died after a violent confrontation with officers at Western Correctional Institution in Allegany County. Iko’s family has filed suit in federal court against prison officials for what the family’s attorney describes as an “unreasonable and illegal” use of deadly force. “This is the place where the truth will be revealed,” Professor Colbert says of the civil lawsuit. “The family will learn what happened.”
