Professor Michael Greenberger

Amsterdam News – Talented, loyal and Hispanic, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales seemed to be perfect for the job even his initials signaled predestination but none of these factors mattered Monday when he submitted his resignation. "It’s not the Democrats causing him problems," said Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the School of Law and a Justice Department official under President Clinton, challenging conclusions by Noel Francisco, a former Justice official in the Bush administration. "He brought this on himself." Greenberger said it remains to be seen if Gonzales is in any kind of legal jeopardy.

Assistant Clinical Instructor Fernando Nunez

WPFW, 89.3 FM – Attorneys who represent illegal immigrants have the additional responsibility of monitoring their clients’ immigration risks from criminal cases. That’s because any person who is not a U.S. citizen, including lawful permanent residents, can be deported because of a criminal conviction. Fernando Nunez, JD, assistant clinical instructor at the School of Law, explained why the School is sponsoring a six-week seminar on what every criminal defense attorney should know about immigration.

Professor Michael Millemann

The Daily Record – When U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales announced that he would resign, the news was welcome but overdue to many Maryland lawyers who have been following his summer battles with Congress and hearing from Justice Department friends about the distraction their boss’ public troubles had become. Michael Millemann, JD, professor at the School of Law, said Gonzales fundamentally misunderstood the posture and responsibility of his position. "He always viewed himself as an extension of the president instead of an independent law officer," Millemann said. "And in that sense, he never really became an attorney general." Considering what he called the "storied history" of the Department of Justice that has been headed by such "legendary people" as Robert Jackson and Robert F. Kennedy, Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School, said Gonzales’ behavior has been a "travesty." Levy said the cloud of impropriety that has enveloped the department under Gonzales’ watch should bother anyone, regardless of their political affiliation.
