Professor Michael Greenberger

The Sacramento Bee (and 13 other newspapers) - In the five years since Sept. 11, federal officials and security experts say the nation faces more threats than the government can ever address. "What they’ve been able to find is people who are loosely talking about doing damage to the United States, and self-evidently, neither have the resources nor the intelligence, nor the money to carry these plots out," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

Professor Rena Steinzor

The San Jose Mercury News – In an Op-Ed co-authored by Rena Steinzor, JD, a professor at the School of Law, she wrote that the integrity of science doesn’t count for as much as it should where politicians are involved and not just on state school boards. Steinzor also argued that the Bush administration and its conservative allies in Congress and industry have routinely curbed scientists’ independence by reshaping, rewriting, and suppressing scientific analysis that is inconsistent with the agendas of special interest groups.

Professor Taunya Banks

WBAL-AM – 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.

Professor Michael Greenberger

The Baltimore Sun – Since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, federal officials have pumped more than $400 million into Maryland to buy equipment, build radio towers, upgrade security at potential targets, retool the state’s emergency management system, and train first responders to prepare for potential catastrophes. But nearly all agree that more needs to be done. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said that security measures should be strengthened at the port of Baltimore and the state’s rail systems. But that would require more federal help, he said.
