Professor Abraham Dash

The Baltimore Sun, The Los Angeles Times - With his murder trial entering its final days, convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad said he would complete his defense presentation today and decide whether to call himself as a witness, a risky tactic that would open him to questioning by prosecutors. "He’s going to testify and say he didn’t do it? And then on cross-examination they will make him look like an idiot," said Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law.

Professor Richard Booth

The Baltimore Sun, and 4 more newspapers - The convictions yesterday of Enron’s chief executive officers, Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, were widely described as providing closure to an era of accounting scandals that brought down several companies and executives in recent years. But corporate malfeasance has proved cyclical, often erupting when the stock market is riding high and euphoria trumps vigilance. Richard Booth, JD, professor at the School of Law, said the prospect of being criminally liable for a company’s fraudulent downfall could be viewed by corporate directors as rationale for boosting CEO pay and by executives as reason to deter risk-taking that has defined American enterprise.

Professor Steven Schwinn

The Washington Post – A Prince George’s County jury has decided that county police acted negligently when an off-duty officer chased a van at a high speed without activating his emergency lights or siren, but that the officer’s negligence was not responsible for an ensuing fatal collision. Steven Schwinn, JD, assistant professor in the School of Law, said police officers are sometimes not forthcoming in lawsuits alleging officer misconduct. "They may want to avoid responsibility for their behavior," he said, adding that some officers may try to minimize their actions to shield their department from liability.

Professor Thomas Perez

The Baltimore Examiner – When former U.S. Sen. Joseph Tydings introduced Montgomery County State’s Attorney Doug Gansler last week as his choice for attorney general, he said, "No person since Steve Sachs has run with the qualifications of Doug." But in the Democratic race to succeed retiring Attorney General Joseph Curran, at least one knowledgeable person disagrees with Tydings: Steve Sachs, the two-term attorney general before Curran. Sachs is backing Gansler’s opponent, Montgomery County Council member Tom Perez, JD, MA, assistant professor at the School of Law.
