– Mark Graber, JD, PhD, a professor in the School of Law, talked about the role of the Supreme Court in shaping the history of the United States. Garber commented on the shift of legal priorities over the past 200 years and how some core values have remained the same. "If you talk with most people, and I talk with most students, they say the Constitution is on their side. So students I know who have never cracked open a textbook about the 18th century are firmly convinced the framers agreed with all of their values," said Graber.

– President Bush would make history if he replaces the U.S. Supreme Court's first female justice with its first Hispanic one, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. The nomination is his opportunity to shift the direction of the court. "This is the key appointment to really shifting the court in a dramatic way," says Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law. "I don't think the people who advise the president are going to take any chances; they are going to strike while the iron is hot."

– Michael Greenberger, JD, former director of the Division of Trading and Markets at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and a professor in the School of Law, says the recent $4.2 billion settlement of class action suits by Enron Corp. investors against Citigroup and JPMorgan is unlikely to have a lasting impact. "The telling factor was (that) the defendant banks' activities were so brazen and (institutional investors') losses so huge that the investors were compelled to change their way of conducting themselves, and they are actually trying to seek remedies for losses they suffered."
