Professor Douglas Colbert

The Baltimore Sun A Baltimore police officer whose wife tried to pawn jewels he had recovered from an armed robbery at a Harford County store will not face criminal charges after he agreed to resign and testify against the men to be tried in the holdup, according to prosecutors in Baltimore and Harford counties. Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law, said he thinks that not charging David Williamson could hurt another criminal case involving the same robbery suspect.

Professor Mark Graber

The Diamondback This week, scholars took up the historic debate over evolution versus creationism through a series of discussion panels and performances of The Great Tennessee Monkey Trial at the University of Maryland, College Park. Mark Graber, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Law, discussed the effect politics have had on the American court system, tracing legal precedents and cases from the 19th century through the present. "You elect conservative Republicans, you get conservative justices," Graber said. "You will see the [John] Roberts' [U.S. Supreme] Court be more accommodating to religion in schools than to increased minority enrollment."
