– Five and a half years after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, many people are rethinking, even challenging, the government’s expanded use of surveillance inside the U.S., spurred by revelations about the scope and number of new programs. One example is the FBI’s use of national security letters (NSL). After Sept. 11, the Patriot Act broadly expanded the use of NSLs, allowing the FBI to use them to obtain information on anyone American or not, suspect or not if the information could be relevant to an investigation on terrorism or espionage. "You have a system that’s badly broken, where the evidence isn’t being collected or used effectively," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

– Every day, patients with life-threatening illnesses run out of FDA-approved treatments. In desperation, some seek drugs that have not yet been approved by the agency and, in some cases, have not even been widely tested. These patients argue they have nothing to lose and are willing to risk taking even a little-studied drug that offers a glimmer of hope. "There are some good arguments on both sides," says Frank Palumbo, PhD, JD, professor at the School of Pharmacy and director of the School’s Center on Drugs and Public Policy, as well as an adjunct professor at the School of Law. "It’s clearly not a slam-dunk for anybody."

– Maryland’s two largest women’s advocacy groups have urged the state’s highest court to say that consensual sex can become rape if a woman says no at any time a conclusion reached by courts of seven other states. If the Court of Appeals agrees to take up the case and court-watchers suspect it will judges could hear arguments this year. "For sure, this is not the last word on this," said Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, noting that "to say once there has been penetration, all bets are off ... is an extremely dicey proposition."

– The School of Law moved up in U.S. News and World Report’s latest graduate school rankings, jumping six slots this year to 36th overall in the magazine’s rankings and 15th among public institutions. "We moved up more places in the rankings than any other top-tier law school," said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School. "It’s extraordinary." The School also won a second-place ranking in the health care law specialty.

– Legislators are confident that a new law meant to ban the creation of new ground rents accomplishes that goal, despite a Baltimore real estate lawyer’s contention that the language contains "a loophole big enough to drive an ocean liner through." The lawyer, Gregory Reed, says that the emergency bill enacted into law last week permits the creation of new ground leases as long as they aren’t "renewable forever." Garrett Power, LLM, LLB, a professor at the School of Law who is an expert on ground rent, said he agreed with Reed’s legal interpretation but said that it is not practically significant.
