– On Monday, all eyes will be on Miami federal judge Marcia Cooke as she presides over the first day in the case that will define her career the trial of Jose Padilla, who stands accused, along with two other men, of taking part in a global plot to support violent Islamic groups overseas. "She’s calling them as she’s seeing them, and she’s not letting any outside pressures influence her decisions," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "This is what we hope of all our federal judges."

– Designated a second-tier port by the Department of Homeland Security, Baltimore will get $1.9 million in federal port security funds this year, a cut of 60 percent from the current year. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said proximity to the nation’s capital should put Baltimore in the top tier. "The British figured out in 1812 that the way to get to Washington, D.C., is through the Chesapeake Bay," he said. "No one understands what the calculus is in making the grant decisions."

– In recent weeks, researchers have discovered a genetic variation that increases the risk of heart disease by up to 60 percent and identified seven new genes connected to the most common form of diabetes. "Genetic research holds great promise to unlock new diagnoses and new treatments, and even to help create pharmaceutical therapies tailored to an individual’s genetic makeup," wrote Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School of Law, in this Op-Ed. "But scientific research and development cannot progress without clinical trials, and these trials can move forward only if the individuals who could benefit are willing to participate. Unless people are guaranteed that their genetic information will not be held against them, we may never realize the full promise of genomic research."

– For 16 months, the FBI watched and listened as a half-dozen young men in New Jersey allegedly talked about how to kill hundreds of Americans, waiting for just the right moment for agents and police to swoop in for a bust. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the New Jersey arrests appear appropriate because the suspects sought to buy weapons. "I don’t view these guys as the most serious terrorist threat or high up the scale, but [the operation] was within the bounds of effective law enforcement," Greenberger said.
