The Dan Abrams Report (MSNBC), WUSA-TV, The Washington Post – A judge barred key government witnesses from testifying at the death penalty trial of Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, ruling that the misconduct of a federal lawyer had so tainted the proceeding that all evidence concerning aviation security must be stricken. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the government’s case has "exploded in its hands" through "unbelievable bungling. . . . I place the responsibility on the prosecutors. It’s sort of prosecution 101 that you keep the lawyers who are helping you under control."

The Baltimore Sun - Maryland’s juvenile jails are housing dozens of young offenders with severe mental or emotional problems waiting for state officals to find them a place in a residential treatment program. "These are kids who are the sickest. They are getting worse because they don’t get [appropriate] services while they are waiting," said Susan Leviton, JD, a professor at the School of Law who heads the Juvenile Law Clinic at the University of Maryland.

Bloomberg.com – The possible bankruptcy of General Motors Corp. has exposed flaws in the trading of so-called credit default swaps because the number of contracts has outstripped the bonds they insure. "Cash settlement will help get around the bond scarcity problem, but if you don't know the who, what and how much, it will be futile," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and former director of trading and markets at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The Daily Record – The Maryland Court of Appeals has held that a package insert included with medication can constitute an express warranty, affirming the victory of a woman whose recovery from Lyme disease was stunted because of misleading instructions that came with her pills. Daniel Gilman, PhD, JD, a visiting professor at the School of Law, said that pharmacies will now have to weigh how much information they need to give patients about a drug.

ABC World News Tonight, BBC World News Radio, BBC Scotland Radio – Prosecutors are struggling to save their bid to execute al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui after the judge said a government lawyer’s misconduct makes it very difficult for the case to go forward. "For the prosecution to potentially blow this on this kind of ineptness is astounding," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.
