Professor Abraham Dash

The Gazette, The Gazette.net – Federal prosecutors said they would retry former Prince George’s County school superintendent Andre Hornsby for alleged kickback schemes, but added that the trial won’t begin for several months. A U.S. District Court judge declared a mistrial Nov. 28 after the jury failed to reach a unanimous decision on any of the 16 charges leveled against Andre Hornsby during a six-week trial. Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law, said mistrials are not uncommon in ‘‘complex, white-collar" crimes like those Hornsby allegedly committed because the evidence is rarely as straightforward as it is in a violent crime. ‘‘When you have a 12-person jury, it’s not rare that you’ll have one or two [jurors] who will just tie the jury up," he said. ‘‘When you get 12 diverse people, you never know what’s in the mind of each one."

Professor Michael Greenberger

WUSA-TV – Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor in the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said that the case of Boumediene v. Bush to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court today is the "case of the term for the court and the pinnacle of serious constitutional arguments in the court." Greenberger adds, "The question is whether Congress and the president correctly denied detainees at Guantanamo Bay access to the writ of habeas corpus in federal district courts to challenge the validity of their detention. The writ essentially allows someone put in prison by an executive official to get before a neutral magistrate to challenge the lawfulness of their detention." Greenberger says this question goes to the heart of the Guantanamo detention facility.

Professor Michael Greenberger

abcnews.go.com, ABC News Radio – Wednesday, lawyers for President Bush once again travels to the highest court in the land to debate the rights of detainees being held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The question of what to do with detainees captured on and off an unorthodox battlefield has provoked a raging controversy around the world. According to Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, "If the Bush administration loses this case, it will almost certainly be a death knell for Guantanamo Bay as a detention facility. A ruling adverse to the administration, while only technically giving detainees their day in court, will almost certainly open a Pandora’s box of judicial scrutiny." Some officials directly involved with the process to review the detention of prisoners at Guantanamo say the system is flawed.
