Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Sun – Prodded by complaints from city health officials, the Ehrlich administration has resumed monitoring for ozone air pollution in Baltimore after ending the testing three years ago. Air pollution monitoring helps determine whether states receive millions of dollars in federal highway funds, said Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law.

Professor Michael Greenberger

Newsday – A year after Hurricane Katrina decimated three states, killed more than 1,330 people and dislocated three-quarters of a million others, the Gulf Coast recovery limps along at a snail's pace, still hobbled by red tape, inflexible rules and bureaucratic fumbling. "My view is we're still vulnerable in terms of a serious hurricane, and we are very vulnerable in terms of other serious natural and man-made disasters," said Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor at the School of Law.

Professor Daniel Friedman

The Daily Record – Maryland’s highest court has tossed Democratic candidate Thomas Perez, JD, MA, assistant professor at the School of Law, out of the running for attorney general, ruling that he did not meet a constitutional requirement that candidates for the job practice law in Maryland for 10 years. "Although I disagree with the decision, the Court of Appeals makes the rules, and I play by the rules," Perez said. In a separate ruling, the Court of Appeals also rejected the state’s early voting law 11 days before it was to go into effect. Daniel Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said the two opinions signal that the court will read the constitution strictly.

Professor Tom Perez

The Washington Post – Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich has been unusually active in his use of executive clemency powers, pardoning scores of convicts and commuting the sentences of five who were serving life sentences for murder. Since taking office in 2003, Ehrlich, a Republican, has granted clemency to 190 former convicts, reversing a two-decade trend among state and national chief executives, who have largely shelved their power to issue pardons. Thomas Perez, JD, MA, assistant professor at the School of Law and candidate for attorney general, said he was overseeing a criminal justice clinic five years ago when he discovered 30 inmates who had "fallen through a crack in the system." In 1994, the General Assembly reduced the sentence for daytime home break-ins from 25 years to three years but did not allow the change to apply retroactively.
