Professor Michael Greenberger

Associated Press, Austin Post-Bulletin – Since he was arrested more than three years ago as a terror suspect, Mohamad Kamal Elzahabi has admitted to plenty, federal authorities say: attending a jihad training camp, fighting as a sniper in Afghanistan, helping train a group seeking to overthrow the Lebanese government. But when Elzahabi finally goes on trial today in federal court in Minneapolis, he faces no charges of terrorism or committing violent acts. Instead, he will be tried on three counts of possession of a fraudulent immigration document for allegedly using a green card obtained through a phony marriage to try to get a job. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor in the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland, said Elzahabi’s case raises some concerns because of the length of time he has been held and because the allegations are largely dependent on voluntary conversations he had with the FBI.

The Daily Record – Baltimore County litigator Irwin Kramer has launched The Legal Television Network, an online service that offers several hundred videos that demonstrate how everyday people are affected by different areas of the law. James Astrachan, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law who was interviewed for some of the network’s upcoming programming, said that informational videos are "a terrific idea, particularly if it gets to the point where it’s searchable and the technology is out there to do that."

Dean Karen Rothenberg

The Baltimore Examiner – Despite being a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, Baltimore lawyer Hassan Murphy has thrown himself into volunteer work at the School of Law. Donating time and money, Hassan and his father, noted attorney Billy Murphy Jr., help aspiring young lawyers through a scholarship in his grandparents’ names. "[Hassan] has a brilliant staff and runs his law firm with passion," said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, Marjorie Cook Professor of Law and dean of the School. "For them to succeed the way they do, it’s because he has such leadership and vision to make it succeed."

Professor Michael Greenberger

Greenwire – The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last week began pursuing action against the late hedge fund Amaranth Advisors LLC for alleged price manipulation of natural gas futures contracts in spring 2006. Enron paved the way as far as showing how a financial institution can affect the energy commodity market, said Michael Greenberger, JD, former director for markets and trading for the CFTC and who is now professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.
