– Attorneys who knew criminal defense giant Fred Warren Bennett say he was a tenacious advocate whose work will continue to impact Maryland law. Bennett, 65, was killed in a car crash on Sunday. "One of Fred’s best features is just that he simply never gave up and he fought on their behalf to the end," said Michael Millemann, JD, death penalty lawyer and professor at the School of Law.

– Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor at the School of Law, discussed the terror plot investigation in London, saying the ability to profile a likely terrorist has been thrown "out the window," as the plotters in London were doctors and of mixed ethnicity. Greenberger says this makes creating counterterrorism policies more difficult. He also noted the importance of the methodical way the British are conducting their investigation into the London plot. Regarding the commutation of Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Greenberger said it is very likely that President Bush will pardon Libby prior to leaving office.

– Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, spoke about the terror attack attempts last week in London and Glasgow.

– The city and, indeed, the state of Maryland became the civil rights movement’s de facto base camp. And from the heart of the struggle, the Mitchell family emerged as one of Baltimore’s most prominent political dynasties. "It began the process of changing the country," said Larry Gibson, LLB, professor at the School of Law. "The Donald Gaines Murray [against the University of Maryland] case was the first successful school desegregation case of any kind in the United States. It began the long road toward eliminating government-supported racial segregation, ultimately culminating in Brown" the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 decision to desegregate public schools.

- The U.S. Supreme Court will hear appeals by Guantanamo Bay inmates, held without trial for more than five years, who say the Bush administration and Congress have deprived them of a constitutional right to go to federal court. The action is a reversal for the court, which in April rejected the same two appeals over the objections of three justices who voted to grant a hearing. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the deciding vote in 2006 when the court barred Bush’s original plan to try Guantanamo Bay inmates before military tribunals, "is clearly the critical vote here. My own view is that everything that has happened since April 2 almost certainly led him to believe that enough is enough."
