Professor Michael Greenberger

The National Law Journal A host of health, consumer, union, and other groups have joined together in an effort to force into the open what have been closed-door negotiations by U.S. Senate and House Republicans regarding a plan to attach the liability waiver to a pending Department of Defense appropriations bill expected to pass both chambers before the year's end. "With such hostility toward plaintiff litigation, that's a very hard thing to sell, but I feel strongly the government needs to step in here," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "It can fight off frivolous lawsuits or have lawsuits dealt with in an administrative process, but to say there is no compensation is asking for trouble."

WUSA-TV Teams of undercover air marshals and uniformed law enforcement officers will fan out to bus and train stations, ferries, and mass transit facilities across the country this week in a new test program to conduct surveillance and "counter potential criminal terrorist activity in all modes of transportation," according to internal federal documents. "We've got to remember that the last two major terrorist attacks-the Madrid railroad bombings and the London subway bombings-have indicated that mass transit facilities are quite vulnerable and really we've paid very little attention in the United States to our mass transit facilities," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

The Christian Science Monitor Congress is poised to try to pass a law regulating security in and around chemical and petrochemical plants, which security experts say are among the most potentially deadly terrorist targets in the nation. "Legislation is very badly needed," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "This has been left to self-regulation, which is self-evidently constricted by the fact that the plants don't want to spend any more money than they have to."
