Professor Frederick Provorny

The Gazette – Chris Larson of San Diego has filed a class-action lawsuit in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, claiming MedImmune, Inc., violated the law in Delaware, where it is incorporated, by not seeking the ‘‘highest value reasonably available" in its sale to AstraZeneca Plc of London for $15.2 billion. Such suits are common after corporate takeovers, said Frederick Provorny, JD, a professor at the School of Law. ‘‘The parties end up settling them and it could be used as leverage," Provorny said. If Larson’s suit proceeds, he said, ‘‘It could hold up the deal."

Professor Susan Leviton

The Baltimore Sun – Maryland and the U.S. Department of Justice have reached a settlement agreement to improve conditions at the troubled Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center. Susan Leviton, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Children’s Law Clinic, said Gov. Martin O’Malley was wise to move quickly with the formal agreement. "I think that in tight budget times, kids get left out," she said. "So when there are commitments, and the Department of Justice is looking over our shoulders, then things can change. It’s a shame that it has to get to that, but that is often what is required."

Professor Michael Greenberger

Associated Press (published in 56 newspapers and 37 Web sites) - This is the second week of testimony in the trial of suspected al-Qaida operative Jose Padilla. Legal experts say his case could have long-lasting legal implications for the war on terrorism because of what the verdict will say about the Bush administration’s tactics. "I think it is going to be a moral lesson in not trying to take shortcuts in trying to vindicate the war on terror," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

Dean Karen Rothenberg

The Baltimore Sun – Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPH, dean of the School of Law, said many legal disputes revolve around questions of parental rights and responsibility.
