– Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, commented on yesterday’s ruling by a panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stating that the government can not order the military to hold a civilian in the United States indefinitely, even if that civilian might be a potential terrorist. This is in reference to the Al-Marri case. Greenberger said, "The court today told the president that his unilateral attempt to wage the war on terror goes way beyond that that the Constitution allows."

- Two lynchings, in 1931 and 1933, were the last recorded in Maryland, and it’s unclear whether any witnesses to the events are still alive. But those events and other incidents of racial violence in the Jim Crow era on the Eastern Shore still affect the region, School of Law associate professor Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, argues in her book, On The Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-first Century. "The wounds of white supremacy," Ifill writes, "still stand open and untreated."

– When a U.S. Attorney described the alleged terror plot to blow up John F. Kennedy International Airport as "one of the most chilling plots imaginable," which might have caused "unthinkable" devastation, some law enforcement officials criticized the initial characterizations as questionable and over hyped. "I think they were correct to take this seriously," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "But there’s a pattern here of Justice Department attorneys overstating what they have. I think they feel under tremendous pressure to vindicate the elaborate counterterrorism structure they’ve created since Sept. 11, including the Patriot Act."

– The state’s highest court has invalidated the body search of a drug offender, effectively wiping out his conviction by ruling yesterday that police had not given him enough privacy when they checked a common drug-stashing location: between his buttocks. Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said courts have to weigh the facts of a warrantless search to decide whether it fails to meet the standard for a reasonable search. "It is a balancing test," he said. "The majority thought the search could have been done more privately without any harm to the police function."

His transatlantic trips last month sparked an international public health scare.
