– As reaction to the foiled JFK plot unfolds, politicians and others are commenting on the plot in its aftermath. Long Island’s Newsday recently had a piece titled "Credibility of U.S. Terror Case Questioned" in which U.S. Attorney Roslynn Mauskopf is quoted as saying the JFK plot is "one of the most chilling plots imaginable." Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, was quoted in Newsday on June 6 as saying that he thinks Mauskopf’s "comments were over the top." Greenberger continues in Newsday to say, "It was a totally overstated characterization that doesn’t comport with the facts." In Newsday, Greenberger also says he has no argument with police pursuing and stopping the alleged plotters.

– A military judge on Guantanamo didn’t even wait to get a request from the defense yesterday before tossing out the government’s terrorism charges against a young Canadian Muslim held prisoner there for the past five years. Unlike an earlier kangaroo court at Guantanamo, that was given the boot by the Supreme Court, these tribunals at least have trained military judges running them, and it turns out that due process means something after all. "You now have adult supervision over these tribunals," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Health and Homeland Security and an expert in counterterrorism law.

– 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, a lawyer in private practice and 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."

– One of the least understood and most important factors in the price of energy, including crude oil, gasoline, natural gas, heating oil, diesel fuel, and electricity is the role played by investment banks and hedge funds that trade in unregulated over-the-counter derivatives that add incredible volatility to the market. School of Law Professor Michael Greenberger, JD, has written extensively about the need to stop this abuse.
Monday, June 4, 2007Assistant Dean Dana MorrisThe Daily Record
– "We’re finding that a lot more students of both genders are asking questions about work-life balance: ‘Am I really willing to make the sacrifices that would be necessary to achieve these 2,200-hour billables and higher?’" said Dana Morris, JD, assistant dean of career development at the School of Law. Newly minted Maryland law graduate Adam Kaplan said that when he was looking for his first law job, he wanted a salary where he could "live comfortably and be able to invest and not spend it all at once." But that wasn’t his only consideration.
