Thursday, June 28, 2007Professor Larry GibsonThe Afro-American (published in six additional newspapers and 15 Web sites)
- After generating months of anxiety among both proponents and opponents of public-school integration, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, ruled that the use of race in student-assignment policies by the Seattle and Louisville, Ky., school districts violated the rights of the white petitioners whose children were denied admission to the schools of their choice. "This is obviously an important decision that must be carefully evaluated," said Larry Gibson, LLB, professor at the School of Law.

Wednesday, June 27, 2007Professor Michael GreenbergerThe Baltimore Sun (published in four additional newspapers)
- Peter Angelos, the Baltimore lawyer who parlayed his cutting-edge role representing workers who were exposed to asbestos into the ownership of the Baltimore Orioles, has placed advertisements in The Sun trolling for possible clients who might have been harmed by arsenic in South Baltimore’s Swann Park. Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law, said such advertising is legal under Supreme Court decisions and ethical under the Maryland Rules of Professional Conduct. "I don’t like it," Dash said. "Perhaps I’m an old-timer, but I think it cheapens the profession."

- A former natural gas trader for a hedge fund facing congressional scrutiny on Monday disputed the findings of Senate investigators who blamed high natural gas prices last winter on the company’s speculative bets. At the hearing, Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, and a former director for trading and markets for the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said the CFTC has been "a captive of the industry it regulates" and not responsive to consumers.
Tuesday, June 26, 2007Professor Lawrence SungThe Baltimore Sun
– With about 3 percent of the nation’s 1.1 million active lawyers specializing in the demanding field, patent lawyers are a precious commodity in a world where intellectual property (IP) has never been more important and can mean a company’s survival. The School of Law is working to meet demand by hiring experienced intellectual property attorneys to design and teach courses on the topic. Before Lawrence Sung, JD, PhD, professor and director of the Intellectual Property Law Program arrived, the School offered three or four IP classes. Now 20 IP classes and a clinical program are offered. "It used to be a patent attorney was just a scientist or an engineer who happened to have a law degree," Sung said. Today, law firms are looking for first-rate lawyers who understand the science, he added.
