- The 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said it wants more information from the government and lawyers for Jose Padilla, who is charged with being part of a North American terror support network that sent recruits and money abroad in the late 1990s, before they order his transfer from a military brig to the custody of the U.S. Department of Justice. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, said he views the order as an attempt by the appellate judges to thwart the U.S. Supreme Court's consideration of the case. "Their concern is that there are five justices on the court who might very well be concerned about the way this case has developed and might be prepared to address whether a U.S. citizen can be swept up on U.S. soil and held incommunicado for three years outside the U.S. criminal process," Greenberger said.

– Only 900 Transportation Security Administration workers oversee private-industry security workers who screen a fraction of the 23 billion pounds of goods transported within the U.S. on passenger and cargo planes. "The idea that there is no security in cargo holds while there's the charade of carefully screening airline passengers is a slap in the face of the airline passenger," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security.

– As Maryland prepares to close most of the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School this week, it has developed a backlog of tough, young offenders being held for weeks in juvenile jails while state officials struggle to find places to put them. "Instead of providing treatment, they are just holding kids," said Susan Leviton, JD, a professor at the School of Law who heads the juvenile law clinic at the University of Maryland.

- John Fader II, JD, senior judicial fellow and lecturer at the School of Law, talked about the proposed "conscience clause" that would allow pharmacists to refuse to fill certain prescriptions because they have an ethical problem with the use of the medication. Fader said the issue is an "emotional one and one that the legislature must come to grips with and deal with."

– Following the Sept. 11 attacks, the number of Saudi students at American universities declined sharply. But that is about to change, and some are wondering if it is good for America's security. "I'm not sure whether the traditional vetting that we give to Saudis when they come to the country is adequate. But I will tell you this: I have very serious doubts that the visa requirements that apply to Saudis―whatever the strength is―are being followed carefully," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security.
