- During a panel discussion about eyewitness testimony at the annual Maryland State Bar Association meeting in Ocean City, Magistrate Judge Paul Grimm, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, will talk about the rule of law in the evidentiary arena, including what experts get to tell a jury about human memory and what thresholds they must meet.

- Whether pets should have the same legal standing as their human owners is just one of a myriad of issues the one-year-old animal law section of the Maryland State Bar Association addressed at a forum in Ocean City on Thursday. Susan Hankin, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, said one of the main challenges in the field of animal law is the pervading legal opinion that defines animals as property. She said under Maryland law, a family’s beloved pet is seen as nothing more than a lamp or a table. "We don’t view the animals in our lives as property they’re seen more as members of the family," Hankin said.

– Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, discussed why the federal government has the right under several statutes to order federal troops into states to restore order during natural disasters. "If information were clear during Hurricane Katrina, many citizens would not have suffered as they did," he said.

- Advancis Pharmaceutical Corp. of Germantown, Md., seems to be narrowing in on a new name for itself, with the likely candidate "MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals." Advancis has until June 30 to stop using its name after losing a patent infringement suit with French firm sanofi-aventis last year. James Astrachan, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said the loss of brand recognition after a name change can be devastating. "You build up all this goodwill," he said, "then tomorrow you have to change your name, and people are out there yelling, ‘Advancis, where are you?’"
Thursday, June 14, 2007Professor Michael MillemannThe Daily Record
- For the many Marylanders who can’t afford a lawyer for a divorce, a child custody battle, or even to defend themselves against eviction, an old idea is getting new traction: reduced-fee legal services. "What’s happening instead is, in most cases, people are representing themselves," said Michael Millemann, JD, the Jacob A. France Professor of Public Interest Law at the School of Law and author of a recent report recommending the new services. Millemann’s findings were presented Wednesday during a meeting at the annual meeting of the judiciary in Ocean City, Md., held in conjunction with the Maryland State Bar Association.
