Professor Michael Greenberger

The Washington Post Ė U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis summoned top elected officials to a public meeting in his courtroom yesterday, seeking to drum up support for building two facilities he said are urgently needed in Northern Virginia: a jail for federal prisoners and a halfway house for offenders nearing release. Judges have been known to speak out on policy issues in speeches and bar association events, but legal specialists said it was virtually unprecedented for a judge to summon legislators and executive branch officials to a public meeting in a courtroom. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, expressed sympathy for "the policy direction" but said the meeting raised "serious conflict-of-interest problems."
