Professor Michael Greenberger

The Associated Press (appeared in four newspapers) - Five years after the attacks of Sept. 11, experts say government officials and citizens are still trying to figure out how much fear is healthy and how much is too much. "It’s important for the American traveling public to keep their eyes and ears open and be concerned about things that are highly unusual," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "That has proved to be one of the most effective deterrents to another terrorist attack."

The Daily Record – Many lawyers say that, as a result of the popularity of shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "Law & Order," juries increasingly are acquitting defendants when they don’t get fingerprints, ballistics, or DNA evidence. "I think it’s up in the air," explained Taunya Lovell Banks, JD, professor at the School of Law, who is organizing a panel discussion on the issue next week at the School. But, she added, "shows like CSI have an education function. If you see the level of public awareness of forensics at the time of the O.J. [Simpson] trial, we really have, as an adult population, become much more savvy and sophisticated."

Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

The Washington Post – Maryland attorney general candidate Douglas Gansler is dismissing the idea that he does not meet a constitutional requirement that attorney general candidates must have practiced law in the state for 10 years, saying his 17 years as a member of the Maryland Bar in private and public office meet the requirement. Dan Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, agreed: "Bar membership should be a sufficient indicator that a candidate has practiced law in the state. Therefore, Gansler would be constitutionally eligible."

Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

The Daily Record - In the Op-Ed "Deciding the Eligibility of an Attorney General Candidate," Dan Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, analyzes the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling that Tom Perez, JD, MA, assistant professor at the School of Law and Montgomery County Council member, is not constitutionally eligible to serve as Attorney General of Maryland. Friedman writes that the Court’s implicit decision that the eligibility of an attorney general candidate presents a justiciable controversy (rather than a political question delegated to the executive branch) is "sound public policy."

Professor Michael Greenberger

The (Delaware) News Journal – Just before President Bush released details of his new plan to create military tribunals for enemy combatants, Navy Lt. Cmdr. Charles Swift talked to hundreds of students and faculty yesterday at the School of Law’s Center for Health and Homeland Security’s Sept. 11th Commemoration Panel. Swift, who represented Salim Ahmed Hamdan in this summer's landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, discussed why the military commissions set up by the Bush administration to try Guantanamo detainees were illegal. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, also was interviewed about the President’s latest plan.
