- Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law, commented on a recent government warning that terrorists may pose as homeless to conduct surveillance of buildings and mass transit facilities. The advisory is part of a broader attempt to make citizens, especially those who use transit systems, aware of things "that seem to be out of place," Greenberger said. In the same newscast, he commented on the Jordanian arrest of a prime suspect in the rocket attack in Aqaba, saying it marks "the first time there has been an indication the insurgence are moving outside of Iraq to attack United States facilities."

The Dallas Morning News – Peremptory challenges the right to dismiss jurors without reason in jury trials are surviving calls for reform despite decades of controversy and a recent statement by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer that "a jury system without peremptories is no longer unthinkable." After a high court ruling in 1935 that blacks could not be excluded from juries by law or practice, prosecutors began routinely using their peremptory strikes to remove them, says Doug Colbert, JD, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Law.

- Two Maryland appellate courts have overturned the men's convictions, holding that Prince George's police detectives violated their rights in obtaining videotaped statements. "If suspects assert their rights to an attorney and it's repeatedly ignored, it suggests not only a lack of training, but a lack of commitment to the Fifth Amendment" (the right against self-incrimination), said Michael Pinard, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law.
