- Members of Congress are calling for the U.S. Coast Guard’s administrative court system to be removed from the agency’s control and placed within an independent arm of government, saying recent claims of bias and mismanagement have raised doubts within the maritime industry about whether the system is fair to the civilian defendants whose cases it handles. Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law who testified at Tuesday’s hearing, said he was "troubled" by a memo that the chief administrative law judge circulated to judges that appeared to tell them how to rule.

– Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said he would pull U.S. troops out of Iraq and send them to Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan, which he called "the right battlefield" in the war against terrorism. "His focus on going after al-Qaida and Taliban and other terrorist groups in their training facilities is to be commended," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. Still, Obama’s call for a quadrennial review of the Department of Homeland Security "suggests a slower approach to a reform in that regard than is needed," he said.

– President Bush created military tribunals to determine the fate of Guantanamo detainees, tribunals that lacked even the basics of due process rules to ensure the reliability of evidence, for example, or the ability to appeal a decision let alone the right to habeas corpus. Congress reacted to the tribunals by doing absolutely nothing. It didn’t approve or disapprove them, but left Bush free to romp over the legal rights of anyone suspected of terrorism. As Michael Greenberger, JD, a law professor at the School of Law and the head of its Center for Health and Homeland Security, has pointed out, staying silent is not the way this constitutional game should be played.
