Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Sun – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ordered the Army yesterday to clean up 14 hazardous-waste sites at Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County. Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law, said it’s "very unusual" for the EPA to impose an order on the Army because the federal government has taken the position that one branch of the federal government can’t sue another. As a result, the EPA has often backed down when confronting the military about its pollution, Steinzor said. "Historically, this is extremely rare," she said.

Professor Michael Greenberger

WTWP; "The Newshour with Jim Lehrer," PBS,(broadcast on 348 public television stations nationwide); The Online Newshour.com; WBFF-TV, Ch. 45 – U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, one of President Bush’s closest confidants and a key architect of his controversial counterterrorism policies, announced yesterday that he is quitting after seven months of bitter confrontation with Congress over his honesty and his competence to run the Justice Department. "I think the straw that broke the camel’s back, although the back break took a while, was the report of his approaching a very sick Attorney General John Ashcroft when Gonzales was White House counsel to try and get him to countermand a decision made by the acting attorney general," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, and a former Justice Department official.

Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The Baltimore Sun – When Arthur Bremer walks out of a Maryland prison in a few months after 35 years behind bars, the would-be assassin will leave without having received psychological or mental health treatment that could have helped him adjust to life on the outside, the state's Parole Commission chairman said yesterday. Bremer, who shot Democratic presidential candidate George C. Wallace in Laurel in 1972, has refused to participate in mental health treatment programs while incarcerated. Andrew Levy, JD, a trial lawyer and adjunct professor at the School of Law, said offenders with varying degrees of mental illness are released from prison every day. Bremer’s crime 35 years ago does not provide a basis for civil commitment, he said.

Professor Robert Percival

The Baltimore Sun – The "Barracuda" is back. Jane Barrett, JD, who earned the piscine predator's nickname in 21 years as a prosecutor of environmental and white-collar criminals in Maryland, has returned to the state after a decade in private law practice in Washington. This time, she'll be schooling a new generation of advocates. She's taking over as director of the Environmental Law Clinic at the School of Law, her alma mater, where she'll run what she calls the biggest pro bono environmental law firm in the state. "She’s had such an incredibly long track record seeing these issues from all different sides, working with agencies, as a prosecutor and as a defense lawyer," said Robert Percival, JD, MA, professor at the School who oversees the School’s Environmental Law Program and who recruited Barrett to return as associate professor. "It would be difficult finding anyone with more experience with all aspects of environmental law."
