The Globe and Mail – 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. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and former director of markets and trading at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said the natural gas market spun out of control after The Enron Corp. persuaded Congress to permit over-the-counter energy derivatives trading to be conducted beyond the scope of regulators.

The Washington Post – The National Association of the Deaf has filed a lawsuit against the Washington Redskins to get team officials to offer closed-captioning for the deaf and hearing-impaired at FedEx Field. "From the referees calling the game on the field to the great number of TV monitors posted through the stadium, there are no captions and equal access to deaf and hard-of-hearing fans," said Marc Charmatz, JD, senior attorney with the National Association for the Deaf Law and Advocacy Center and adjunct professor at the School of Law.

Business Week, The New York Post – Billion-dollar bets on the spread between March 2007 and April 2007 gas futures prices blew up in the face of Amaranth Advisors, LLC leading to $5 billion in losing positions that the fund is now trying to liquidate. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and former director of markets and trading at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said Amaranth’s woes highlight the need for the CFTC or Congress to start tightening the presently nonexistent reins on over-the-counter energy derivatives. "It borders on being sinful," Greenberger said. "The CFTC has turned a blind eye to these markets, making them unreliable as a hedging vehicle."

WBAL-TV, Ch. 11 - The chief judge of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland is considering a challenge to the state’s use of lethal injection by a man on Maryland’s death row. "It’s difficult to believe that Judge [Benson] Legg would be one of the first federal judges in the country to hold that lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment," said Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law.

"The Osgood Files", CBS News Radio – Five years after the anthrax attacks, no charges have been filed and no arrests made. "Legislation [Project Bio Shield, a bioterror drug stockpiling program] was passed with the noblest of goals and with the highest of hopes, but it’s been a bureaucratic nightmare getting it implemented," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.
