– "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.

– 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."

– Nineteen gay and lesbian plaintiffs are waiting for the Maryland Court of Appeals to resolve a case that challenges state laws limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples. Delegate Don Dwyer said the judges have taken too long to issue their decision in Conaway v. Deane
. He said the state constitution notes, in Section 15 of Article IV, that the court shall issue all rulings "within three months" of oral arguments. Arguments in the case occurred eight months ago. But Daniel Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said the court is under no obligation to rule within 90 days. "Many years ago, the Court of Appeals determined that Article IV, Section 15 is directory, not mandatory," he said. "It is a rare case that is decided that quickly."
