The Toledo Blade – Federal officials have urged local and state authorities to draw up their own disaster response plans, stockpile equipment when possible, and, in the event of a disaster, be prepared to be on their own for an extended period of time. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, worries about that sort of advice. "People should be expecting more out of their federal government," he said. "If bird flu is as serious as people say it might be, it’s not going to be like Hurricane Katrina. You're talking a Category 5 hurricane in every city of the country."

The Recorder - The Supreme Court, in its first case regarding the federal Securities Litigation Uniform Standards Act, unanimously ruled that the act pre-empts state law class actions brought by people who claim they suffered losses when they were fraudulently induced to hold or retain not to purchase or sell securities. But Richard Booth, JD, professor at the School of Law, said it is too early to discern what the new Roberts court thinks about securities law. "I’d be surprised if they get expansive about federal power in this area," he added.
