– Government reports showed that housing starts by builders and permits both fell to their lowest levels in more than a decade. "The underlying problem, of course, is that people are reneging on their mortgages, but that has set off a house of cards," said Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former securities regulator. "The big question is whether confidence will return."

– "This is a face-saving day for the Bush administration," said Michael Greenberger, JD, a School of Law professor and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, about Jose Padilla being found guilty of terrorism charges. "It would have been quite an embarrassment if he had been acquitted. But this evidence could have been presented immediately without the distraction and waste of valuable time" of the enemy combatant claims. Had the administration done so, Greenberger added, it would have sent a "signal to the world" that the administration would prosecute the war on terror while working within the rule of law.

– The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks cast a long shadow over the terrorism support trial of Brooklyn-born Jose Padilla and his two co-defendants, with prosecutors constantly emphasizing al-Qaida connections and some of the most riveting testimony given by Osama bin Laden himself in the form of a decade-old TV interview. "There’s the old saying that when you lie down with dogs, you get fleas," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "It’s fair game for the prosecutors to mention al-Qaida and for Osama bin Laden to be portrayed."

– Under a City Council proposal, New York City would prohibit smoking in cars where children are riding, joining the ranks of Arkansas, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, Bangor, Maine, and Rockland County, N.Y., where similar legislation has been passed. Kathleen Dachille, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law and director of the Legal Resource Center for Tobacco Regulation, Litigation and Advocacy, which has helped guide the creation of these policies, said she is well aware of the arguments against them from privacy infringement to difficulty of enforcement. She’s heard from many people staunchly opposed to such bans. "I received what is slightly short of death threats, and my comments were reasonable," she said. "I couldn’t even answer my phone for a couple of days."

– After five years of incarceration, Jose Padilla will finally hear from a jury today as to whether he is guilty of terrorism charges. In many ways, Padilla is a test case for President Bush’s legal war on terror since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. John Ashcroft, attorney general at the time, gave an unusual televised statement, telling the world of Padilla’s capture at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. Ashcroft said that authorities had "disrupted an unfolding terrorist plot to attack the United States by exploding a radioactive ‘dirty bomb.’" Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the announcement introduced the administration’s novel legal strategy: "The Ashcroft announcement was the first articulation of what came to be called the enemy combatant theory, and the first time a United States citizen would be deemed an enemy combatant."
