Professor Kathleen Dachille

WJZ-TV, Ch. 13 – In the wake of the guilty plea of former state Sen. Thomas Bromwell on public corruption charges, Maryland’s U.S. Attorney says he wants to focus on whether there is too much tolerance of corruption in government. Kathleen Dachille, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law, said voters must watch over those they elect by "knowing what they’re voting on, why they’re voting that way, and who are they receiving money from."

Aviation News Network – Terrorists may be conducting "dry runs" at U.S. airports to test security before a possible attack, according to a Transportation Security Administration warning to airport screeners. BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is one of four airports across the country that intercepted several items in luggage over the last several months that resembled improvised bomb-making components. Descriptions of the homemade packages, which included various combinations of wires, batteries, cell phone components, clay and cheese, leave little doubt that terrorists are testing the nation’s airport security system, said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

Newsday, WTWP, 107.7 FM, WTOP, 103.5 FM – Terrorists may be conducting "dry runs" at U.S. airports to test security before a possible attack, according to a Transportation Security Administration warning to airport screeners. BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is one of four airports across the country that intercepted several items in luggage over the last several months that resembled improvised bomb-making components. Descriptions of the homemade packages, which included various combinations of wires, batteries, cell phone components, clay and cheese, leave little doubt that terrorists are testing the nation’s airport security system, said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "I don’t know why you would connect a cell phone charger to a piece of cheese," he said. "The facts as described can lead to no other conclusion than that these are dry runs %85 and yet we’re told not to worry about it," Greenberger said.

The Daily Record – Dwight Sullivan, a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves who worked as the chief defense lawyer for the detainees at Guantanamo Bay for the past two years, is leaving his post next month when his orders expire. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, does not know Sullivan, but he praised the work of the military officers who represent the detainees. "I think it came as a great shock to the Bush administration that all the military lawyers would not fall into line and adopt the scheme that they had proposed and developed," said Greenberger. "The general public was shocked to see the defense lawyers putting up a brave battle."

WBAL-TV, Ch.11, WBALTV.com – Binding arbitration clauses, which are often in credit card agreements, sales contracts for items such as computers and appliances, and contracts for telephone service, gym memberships, and employment, require disputes to go through specific channels outside the courts, and the decision is final. "Consumers are signing these arbitration clauses in contracts and have no idea [the clauses are] in the fine print on one of 20 pages they sign," said Peter Holland, JD, MA, adjunct professor at the School of Law.
