– After a rocky year stemming from the government's handling of Hurricane Katrina, things are looking brighter for some protégés of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Julie Myers is the new head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Alice Fisher leads the U.S. Department of Justice's Criminal Division. "When people get into positions of power, they tend to bring in people they know," says Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security. "The question is the competency of those people."

– Baltimore has more than 175 police surveillance cameras, second in the United States only to Chicago, but far behind international cities such as London and Jerusalem. "The debate in the U.S. Supreme Court has gone something like this: What you hold out for the public to observe isn't subject to privacy protections. But what you seek to protect as private even in the public sphere may trip some Constitutional protections. And the court has also said that when the government starts engaging in conduct that looks sort of like a 24-hour, seven-day a week dragnet, then the Constitutional protections are triggered," said Renee Hutchins, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law.
Sunday, January 22, 2006Adjunct Professor Linda Springrose and Professor Steve Schwinn
The St. Louis Daily Record, and two more newspapers - Linda Springrose, JD, an associate with Franklin & Prokopic, a law firm in Baltimore and an adjunct professor at the School of Law, died last Wednesday of an apparent embolism while recovering from a December surgery for a broken leg. Steve Schwinn, JD, an assistant professor at the School of Law, who recruited Springrose to the law school, characterized her loss as a "tragedy to the community. She would be engaging and thoughtful, dynamic, [and] approachable," he said. "And what she did, I think, especially well is bring a kind of practical approach to an otherwise somewhat sterile environment; so she was able to share with the students how things work in practice."

- A former U.S. Department of Defense analyst was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for passing government secrets to two employees of a pro-Israel lobbying group and to an Israeli government official in Washington, D.C. The sentence fell at the low end of the federal sentencing guidelines, which called for a term as long as 188 months. "It could have been tougher," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security.
