– Responding to warnings that an influenza pandemic, coupled with a shortage of vaccine, could cause almost one-third of Americans to fall ill, the U.S. Air Force is developing a plan to provide military assets for a civilian-led response. "The only institution that understands and lives with on a daily basis an incident command structure is the active military," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "If nothing else, [the military] can provide an organization and operational structure to respond to a crisis."

– While the two U.S. stock exchanges are setting their sights on overseas growth the New York Stock Exchange will soon close on its acquisition of Paris-based Euronext, while Nasdaq is aggressively pushing for control of the London Stock Exchange they're both finding more competition at home. "People now see that exchanges are more than just mere intermediaries they're profit centers," says Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director of trading and markets for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission during the Clinton Administration.

– The Supreme Court heard arguments on Monday in a pair of cases Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District and Meredith v. Jefferson County Board of Education testing the limits of school districts’ abilities to integrate their schools under the federal Equal Protection Clause. The Supreme Court’s Equal Protection jurisprudence is far too dull a knife for the subtle racial classifications that demand fine slicing, writes Steven Schwinn, JD, an associate professor at the School of Law. The court should reject the temptation to apply strict scrutiny by rote, merely because the classification is in some sense racial. Instead, it should seize the opportunity to refine and sharpen its Equal Protection jurisprudence to meet the demands of these unique cases.

– When a principal authorizes its independent contractor-agents to transact business on its behalf with third persons, and the principal benefits financially from the contracts made on behalf of the principal by its agent, the principal may be liable in an action brought under the Lanham Act for unfair competition. This can occur if the agent’s bad acts are reasonably foreseeable, the consumer does not know that the agent is not authorized to make the misrepresentations, and reliance on the misrepresentation by the customer is reasonable, writes James Astrachan, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law.

– A legible name tag, like a well-written question, changes everything, removes the mystery, and provides crucial context for the reader, writes Andrew Baida, JD, an adjunct professor of appellate advocacy at the School of Law. Writing an effective question is one of the biggest challenges brief-writers face because, to do it well, the writer must reduce to one sentence a succinct description of the issue that the appellate court is being asked to decide. Make sure you ask the right question by directing the reader’s attention to the core point of disagreement between the parties, Baida adds.
