Professor Steve Schwinn

The Daily Record – In the Op-Ed "The Primaries’ Other Culpable Party," Steven Schwinn, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law, explained why the Maryland Court of Appeals "cast an even darker, anti-democratic shadow" over Tuesday’s primary than the widespread polling problems voters encountered.

Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

The Baltimore Sun – Maryland’s highest court struck down the General Assembly’s attempt to fire the members of the Public Service Commission, calling it a usurping of the gubernatorial power that is "repugnant to the Maryland Constitution." Dan Friedman, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law and whose book on the Maryland Constitution was cited in the majority opinion, said the crucial legal point in the case was whether the General Assembly intended a bona fide reorganization of the Public Service Commission, which it could do, or simply fire executive branch employees, which it can’t.

Professor Doug Colbert

The Baltimore Sun – An unprecedented number of balloting problems piled up one atop another in Tuesday’s primary, preventing untold numbers of voters from casting their ballots, and leaving candidates waiting more than 14 hours after the polls closed to learn the outcome of key races. "State government failed in one of its most important responsibilities ensuring voting rights for Maryland citizens," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law.

Professor Robin Wilson

The Washington Times – Traditional values groups and conservative scholars have expressed concern about a book published by the American Law Institute (ALI) with proposals on how the law should address problems such as divorce, custody, alimony, property distribution, and child support. In response, Cambridge University Press released "Reconceiving the Family: Critique on the American Law Institute’s Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution," edited by Robin Fretwell Wilson, JD, professor at the School of Law. "My vision for the book is that it will be on the shelf, side by side with the Principles, to be consulted by legislators and judges," she said.

Professor Taunya Banks

The City Paper – Taunya Lovell Banks, JD, professor at the School of Law, who is organizing a panel discussion on the "CSI Effect" on Thursday, Sept. 14, talked about why many lawyers say that, as a result of the popularity of shows such as "CSI" and "Law & Order," juries increasingly are acquitting defendants when they don’t get forensic evidence. "What I find amazing is that lawyer shows and these CSI shows are incredibly popular and have become the substitute for learning about how the legal system works, because most Americans don’t serve on juries, and the only time that most Americans come into contact with the legal system is on those few occasions when they may be called for jury duty," she said.
