The Street.com – Critics are saying a regulatory loophole at the InterContinetal Exchange (ICE), an Altanta-based electronic exchange, may have played a role in last week's $4 billion loss at Amaranth Advisors, LLC. "It will come out that the ICE was a market that was heavily used," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and former director of markets and trading at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "The ICE loophole allows for off-market trades."

Dow Jones Newswire (appeared in eight newspapers and seven Web sites) - The financial meltdown at Amaranth Advisors, LLC has shone a spotlight on the regulation or lack of it that governs natural gas trading in North America. Amaranth’s tremendous loss would not have been possible on the New York Mercantile Exchange, which imposes limits on the number of positions traders can take in each commodity, said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and former director of markets and trading at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The Associated Press (appeared in 16 newspapers) - The Bush administration’s decision to drop the "enemy combatant" label from alleged al-Qaida operative Jose Padilla, and prosecute him on civilian terror charges has not gone smoothly, with even the judge in the case raising questions about sketchy evidence and a vague indictment. "If it’s not a problem as a matter of law that they are getting people on talk rather than action, it certainly is a problem with juries," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "If all they produce is telephone conversations, they run the risk that they are not going to convince a jury to convict."

The Winston-Salem Journal – The U.S. Senate is expected to pass a public health bill this week that includes a provision to establish the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, or BARDA. But many officials warn that there is more to be done, and that BARDA has to be administered properly. "My one concern is that we have been legislated to death. What we need are competent administrators in place. And until competent people are put in charge of this program, we are not going to achieve success," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.
