Professor Abraham Dash

The Associated Press, 25 newspapers and 15 Web sites - The Maryland public defender’s office said it will not assist John Allen Muhammad any more in his murder trial in Montgomery County, a day after a judge ruled he could act as his own attorney. If the case were to go to trial without a standby counsel and Muhammad became unruly or could no longer represent himself, it would likely lead to a mistrial, said Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law.

Maryland’s team featured students David Chamberlin, Rachel Simmons, and Sig Libowitz. Another team of students Julia Carolan, Veronica Jennings, Andy Lopez, and Jason Downs is competing in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America’s national trial competition, which started yesterday.

Professor Andrew Levy

WJZ-TV – Convicted sniper John Muhammad refused to back down from his decision to represent himself in his latest murder trial, but agreed to let the court find an attorney to help with the case. "Many criminal defendants think that they’re pretty smart people," said Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law. "The fact is if they were as smart as they think they are, they probably wouldn’t be in the courtroom as a criminal defendant."

Professor Michael Greenberger

The Christian Science Monitor – In a government sting, U.S. investigators twice managed to slip the illicit materials across America’s border, once at a point of entry from Canada and another time from Mexico. "This is not getting the attention it deserves from the leadership at the department [the Department of Homeland Security]," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

Professor Richard Booth

Daily Business Review, and three more newspapers - 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.
