– Michael Greenberger, JD, professor in the School of Law and a former high-ranking official in the United States Justice Department, was interviewed by Judy Woodruff concerning the testimony of Kyle Sampson, the former chief of staff to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, concerning the firing of eight U.S. attorneys. During a congressional hearing, Sampson contradicted Gonzales’ statements two weeks ago that he wasn’t personally involved in the firing of eight U.S. attorneys.

– A woman whose hand became infected after she was stuck with a syringe lying on a hospital countertop can proceed with her lawsuit against the hospital, the Court of Appeals has held, even though it was filed in Harford County Circuit Court after the three-year statute of limitations. The woman had first filed a timely claim with the Health Care Alternative Dispute Resolution Office. Her attorney, Andrew Baida, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said the decision makes sense because, had she gone straight to circuit court, "that complaint would have been met with a motion to dismiss for failure to file with Health Claims."

– Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller told a Senate committee Tuesday that he was moving swiftly to fix the problems exposed in the latest report on the bureau’s failures, most prominently the mishandling of demands for records under the USA Patriot Act. "There is a uniform view that the FBI has lost credibility, and its reputation as the nation’s top and most effective law enforcement agency has been undercut," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.
Tuesday, March 27, 2007Senior Judicial Fellow John Fader IIThe Baltimore Sun
– Howard Friedman, an attorney who was later the chief clerk of Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals, died March 20 at the age of 83. "He was a great asset to the Court of Special Appeals," said John Fader II, JD, a retired Baltimore County Circuit Court judge who is now a senior judicial fellow and lecturer at the School of Law. "He was a highly competent individual and as helpful as any human being could be. He was a great civil servant."

- Emergent BioSolutions, a Maryland company that makes the only federally licensed anthrax vaccine, has had to overcome lingering questions about the safety of its vaccine, which has caused controversy in the military. Soldiers have complained about significant side effects, and some have refused to be injected. A court battle temporarily stopped mandatory vaccinations, but the military resumed vaccinations after the Food and Drug Administration said the product was safe and effective. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the FDA’s ruling has not persuaded everyone in the skeptical vaccine community. "The vaccine," he said, "does not have a good reputation in the medical science community."
