– The U.S. Supreme Court begins its new term next week with several potential blockbusters on the docket. "This is the [Anthony] Kennedy court," said Mark Graber, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Law. "He’s the only interesting one on the court. The definition of an insignificant case is one where Justice Kennedy is in the minority." Both Graber and Max Stearns, JD, professor at the School of Law, said the justice to watch this term will be Kennedy. It’s likely that a majority of the current court would have decided several recent cases differently than they were actually decided, but Kennedy could end up tempering the impulse to overturn precedent, Stearns said. Another major case this term could change the country’s system for granting patents, causing a "dramatic difference" in the way companies do business, said Lawrence Sung, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Intellectual Property Law Program.

– MedImmune, Inc., a company based in Gaithersburg, Md., will have its patent dispute lawsuit argued before the U.S. Supreme Court next month. Lawrence Sung, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Intellectual Property Law Program, said the case is not garnering much attention on its own but is significant in that it is part of a wave of patent cases the court has considered recently. He noted there have been more patent cases in the last few years than in the 50 preceding years.

– Courts in as many as two dozen states have ruled secondhand smoke can be a factor in a custody case. "You have no more right to smoke in front of your children than smack them in the face," said Kathleen Dachille, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law and director of the Legal Resource Center for Tobacco Regulation, Litigation and Advocacy.

- A countywide ban on smoking in bars and restaurants is something most candidates for offices in Anne Arundel County are willing to consider. Democrat Jamie Benoit of Odenton, who is seeking the open District 4 seat, said he’d like to see Annapolis support a ban first, since the city has a lot of tourists and a large number of bars and restaurants. A countywide ban would affect the city, unless city lawmakers choose to opt out of it, said Michael Strande, JD, deputy director of the Legal Resource Center for Tobacco Regulation, Litigation and Advocacy at the School of Law.

– During a live interview, Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the intelligence report, ordered declassified yesterday by President Bush, offers a sober assessment of the spread of Islamic terrorism. "The report evidences the fact that progress has been made," said Greenberger, "but the general conclusion is that more terrorists have been created by the war in Iraq and other world events than we are able to defeat, and the outlook for the next five years is not a rosy one, to say the least."
