– Arthur Bremer, who shot and paralyzed Democratic presidential candidate George Wallace during a Laurel campaign event in 1972, will be released from a Maryland prison before year’s end after serving 35 years of a 53-year sentence, state officials said. In 1996, a state parole commission hearing officer wrote that paroling Bremer would "effectively proclaim an ‘open hunting season’ on" other politicians. But experts say authorities must release someone who has served the required time in prison when there is no compelling legal basis for holding him. "You can’t just keep locking someone up simply because you are afraid that maybe they will commit another crime when they get out," said Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law.

- Baltimore police say a man died this past weekend after officers subdued him with a taser. This is the third death in the city this year after a suspect was stunned with a taser. "As these cases increase a police officer can no longer say, ‘Well, I didn’t know.’ A reasonable police officer is responsible for knowing how a weapon works," said Mark Graber, JD, PhD, MA, professor at the School of Law.

– The market for lawyers who know science is so strong that the University of Maryland School of Law steers students in that direction, said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School. She said the School has legal clinics for biotech businesses in Montgomery County and now Baltimore, so students can get experience dealing with high-tech topics. "The law school really is creating sort of a whole expertise in this area," she said. "We really have to be committed to creating the practice in this city because with technology, as you can imagine, you can have any lawyer in the country take care of you." Some firms have taken a hyper-local approach to client service. Miles & Stockbridge, for example, has an office in the University of Maryland BioPark.

– In hs Op-Ed "Tearing Down Statues," Mark Graber, JD, PhD, MA, professor at the School of Law, argues that "tearing down all monuments to Roger Taney [chief justice of the United States who wrote the majority opinion for the Supreme Court in Dred Scott v. Sandford
] encourages the historically false belief that slavery existed in the United States largely because Taney and a few other leaders made evil decisions."

- Shareholders vote today on Sam Zell’s $8.2 billion takeover of Tribune Co. Zell may be unable to lower the offer because his presence on Tribune’s board would leave him open to accusations he used inside information, said Robert Suggs, JD, professor at the School of Law. "If this thing unwinds, everyone is looking to sue everyone."
