The Baltimore Sun Church and neighborhood organizations will likely have little success when opposing the building of drug treatment programs in their communities due to recent federal court rulings under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The act states that such programs should receive the same consideration as other medical facilities and may be built anywhere. Still, some program organizers have had trouble persuading council members to sponsor an ordinance on their behalf - one reason few methadone clinics have opened in the city, said Ellen Weber, JD, an assistant professor in the School of Law.

Professor Michael Greenberger

The Christian Science Monitor Transit systems across the country are expanding security operations in the wake of two terrorists bombings this month in London. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland's Center for Health and Homeland Security, said more should be done to install a comprehensive surveillance system, similar to London's. "It's fairly shocking that the MTA has $600 million for security and still doesn't have closed-circuit TV's for surveillance," said Greenberger.
