Professor Michael Millemann

The Daily Record – Death-row inmate John Booth-El has filed a brief in Baltimore City Circuit Court claiming that the application of the death penalty is racially motivated. The filing follows an unrelated call by Lt. Gov. Michael Steele for further study of factors that could contribute to inequities in the state's system of capital punishment. Michael Millemann, JD, professor at the School of Law and one of Booth-El's lawyers, declined to speculate on the politics of Steele’s recommendation or on how Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., will respond, but he said he’s pleased. "I think his lieutenant governor has made a good suggestion and I think he ought to listen to him," Millemann said.

Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Sun – As the European Union prepares to ban the herbicide atrazine, environmental groups in the U.S. have filed lawsuits claiming that the compound should be banned here because researchers not only have detected it in drinking water, but also have linked atrazine to deformities in frogs and lower sperm counts in men. Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law who helped file the lawsuit, said the EU took the position that caution was wiser than waiting for proof that atrazine is hurting people or animals.

Professor Michael Greenberger

The Village Voice – In two recent cases, the U.S. Supreme Court has revealed a strong likelihood that it will disagree with President Bush about the constitutional legitimacy of military commissions at Guant%E1namo Bay, Cuba, and whether the Supreme Court itself had the right to hear the case.
