- Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, discussed why the head of the FBI’s Boston office is warning the region’s top universities to be on the lookout for foreign spies or potential terrorists who might be trying to steal unclassified, yet sensitive, research.

- The Bush administration’s effort to create a separate legal system for the war on terrorism may be foundering. Skeptical civilian and military courts have blocked the government’s contention that to fight terrorism the president can invoke military powers that supersede traditional legal protections. The administration has "been hit on the back of the head repeatedly by the courts for this enemy-combatant" theory, says Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "Clearly, this is going to evaporate when Bush leaves office."

- Scams involving foreign currency are becoming increasingly common over the past few years as the U.S. dollar has steadily declined against the euro, providing what seemed like a sure one-way bet. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, and the former head of trading and markets at the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said that the problem dates back to the creation of the CFTC in 1974, when it was barred from overseeing any off-exchange currency trading. "I don’t think there was an intent to open the door to any of this fraudulent activity against retail investors," said Greenberger.

– The Supreme Court ruled that Philip Morris Cos. Inc. cannot move a lawsuit by cigarette smokers into federal court. Robert Condlin, JD, LLM, professor at the School of Law, said the case is more interesting for what it says about the Supreme Court than for the result itself. He said that Justices Antonin Scalia and Stephen Breyer have long been at odds over statutory interpretation, with Scalia examining just the text of a statute and Breyer looking at the statute’s history and intent. Breyer won this round and even got Scalia to sign on to an opinion that heavily considered history and intent, Condlin said.

– In this cover story, Baltimore’s evacuation plan is discussed. Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, says that he doesn’t think any city or state in the country has been focused more on evacuation plans than Baltimore and Maryland. With that said, Greenberger says there are still "too many cars, too many people, too many people needing assistance with public transportation and too few arteries to get out of the city."
