Professor William Reynolds

The Baltimore Sun – The Court of Appeals, Maryland’s highest court, is poised to begin live Webcasting of its oral arguments, making the proceedings widely and immediately available for the first time to people outside its Annapolis courtroom. "The gay marriage case, that might be watched, maybe a death penalty case might be watched," said William Reynolds, JD, professor at the School of Law. Arcane legal questions, such as whether a state agency followed its own regulations, probably would not, he said.

Professor Michael Greenberger

Investment Dealers’ Digest – JPMorgan’s announcement last month that its third-quarter earnings got a boost from the misfortune of Amaranth Advisors, LLC, and the sudden departure of David Puth, who oversaw JPMorgan’s commodities business (among several others), has raised more than a few eyebrows. "JPMorgan may have drawn attention to itself by announcing that it profited from Amaranth's woes," says Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former division chief at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "It was probably not the wisest thing in the world for JPMorgan to go out advertising the profits they made from a hedge fund blowing up. It’s just waving a red flag in front of many legislators who are worried about the issue."

"The Marc Steiner Show," WYPR, 88.1 FM – A class-action lawsuit filed recently challenges Maryland’s long-standing practice of denying defendants the right to counsel when they first appear before a District Court commissioner in which bail, if any, is initially set. "You have a judicial hearing where no one knows what has taken place," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law, whose clinic students are working on the case.

Dean Karen Rothenberg

WJZ-TV, Ch. 13 – The Court of Appeals, Maryland’s highest court, begins Webcasting its oral arguments today, making the proceedings available for the first time to people outside its Annapolis courtroom. Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School of Law, said she is thrilled that students can watch the proceedings and "then be able to talk about it, and critique it, the arguments, the judges’ questions, and then have the ability to watch things unfold before their eyes, that’s a lot different than being able to read about a case after the fact."

Professor Steve Schwinn

The Daily Record – "The Maryland Court of Appeals last week issued a pair of decisions that should be both widely lauded and universally reviled," wrote Steven Schwinn, JD, associate professor at the School of Law. Schwinn penned an Op-Ed about the cases that overturned the convictions of two homeless sex offenders for failing to register their addresses with local authorities under Maryland’s sex offender registration act.
