Assistant Dean Dana Morris

Kansas City Daily Record, and four more newspapers - A unanimous Supreme Court handed the military a victory over law schools angry at its "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy, holding that the federal government is not interfering with the schools’ First Amendment rights by requiring them to host military recruiters. Dana Morris, JD, assistant dean for career development at the School of Law, said her office will continue to treat military recruiters "with the same courtesies and services that we extend to all employers that are recruiting on campus." But, she said, Maryland will also continue to notify students of the military’s discriminatory hiring practices; whenever the school advertises a military job to its law students, it includes a note about the military’s policies on sexual orientation.

Professor Mark Graber

The Baltimore Sun – A Howard County police officer accused of running an illegal gambling operation filed suit yesterday, saying his department violated his right to free speech, including his ability speak out against Chief Wayne Livesay’s campaign for a seat on the County Council. Mark Graber, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Law, said that in a 1968 case, Pickering v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court granted government employees the right to speak "on matters of public importance" as long as it doesn’t disrupt the workplace. "Under Pickering, an officer can surely seem to get up and say, ‘Don’t vote for this bum,’" Graber said. "But if that officer is reassigned to a different beat, which is simply a personnel decision, that’s a different issue."

Professor Michael Greenberger

The New York Times, and three more newspapers - A federal judge has to decide whether a confession made to Israeli security agents by an American citizen could be used in a U.S. trial in which he is accused of laundering money for Hamas to finance terrorist acts. "These cases are by and large very rare," Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said of the use in United States courts of confessions obtained in foreign prisons. "For the United States, these cases are proving to be big victories for them."
