Professor Michael Greenberger

The Philadelphia Inquirer – The state of New Jersey is planning to go to court to block Dubai Ports World from taking over a major operation at the Newark port. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said that conventional wisdom would probably dismiss the federal lawsuit as a public relations gesture. However, Greenberger says the theory that "states are owed some obligation of participation in decisions like this is not far-fetched."

Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Sun – The Ehrlich administration stopped monitoring ozone pollution in Baltimore almost three years ago, despite the city’s chronically bad air and the presence of the state’s largest concentration of people with asthma. Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Environmental Law Clinic, said shutting down all the ozone monitors in Baltimore is "outrageous" and suggests that the Maryland Department of the Environment might be trying to make air pollution levels look lower than they really are.

It’s one of several lawsuits against the lead-paint industry, but the first to succeed. Donald Gifford, JD, professor at the School of Law, says that this case will give a big boost for other cases against lead-paint businesses and other products as well.
