The state Critical Area Commission is appealing a recent county decision allowing a Magothy River island home built without proper permits to stand. Maryland's Waterkeepers, a group of 13 environmental watchdog organizations that monitor the bay and its tributaries, also came out against the home. The Waterkeepers claim critical area laws are not being enforced effectively statewide and recently commissioned the School of Law's Environmental Law Clinic to study the matter.

"Whose Role Is It Anyway?" will be posed at a Nov. 16 panel discussion about nontraditional casting at the Hippodrome's M&T Bank Pavilion. Presented by the Hippodrome Foundation and the School of Law, "Whose Role Is It Anyway?" will examine the practice of casting across lines of race, gender, sexual orientation, and physical abilities. "If you change the genders, have you changed the meaning of the work? And if you've changed the meaning of the work, you've transformed it, you've created a derivative work that's outside of the license granted," said Robert Suggs, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a panelist. "I'm increasingly more convinced about the importance of trying to address complex social issues that are sometimes difficult to talk about by using theater, by using the arts," says Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, dean of the School of Law.

The legal battle over double-dealing and favoritism in the mutual fund industry, which is being heard in federal court in Baltimore, could be winding toward a settlement. Some confidential settlements have been reached over the past year. "That suspends discovery," said Richard A. Booth, JD, professor at the School of Law. "Witnesses wouldn't have to show up; people wouldn't have to be digging through files. All of that can be expensive."

- The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) has sent a letter to the Queen Anne's County Commissioners asking them to reverse their decision to ban a new housing development on Kent Island. "It looks as if MDE is interceding on behalf of the developer in this case, and in this way, interfering with what has traditionally been the local prerogative," said Garrett Power, JD, a professor in the School of Law.
Wednesday, November 9, 2005Professor Kerry RodgersThe Capital
The School of Law's Environmental Law Clinic has been commissioned to conduct a study to determine whether the state's Critical Area Act―the law designed to protect the most environmentally sensitive land within 1,000 feet of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries by limiting development, grading, tree-cutting and other disturbances―is being enforced effectively. Kerry Rodgers, JD, MES, visiting professor at the School of Law, said the study should be completed next spring.
