Ė Atlanta residents may be wondering and worrying about Georgiaís plans for a worst-case drought scenario in which their taps go dry, but government officials say they donít think thatís going to happen. Instead, state officials are focusing their drought emergency planning efforts on select communities north and east of Atlanta that they consider to be at greater risk of severe water shortages. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the looming drought disaster appears to be beyond Georgiaís ability to deal with on its own.

- A former Navy Midshipmen charged with supporting terrorism by disclosing secret information about the location of Navy ships and the best ways to attack them says evidence against him was illegally obtained and should be thrown out, citing a ruling by a federal judge that struck down key portions of the Patriot Act as unconstitutional. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, predicted that ruling will lead to more challenges of the law. "This will become an issue that will almost certainly find its way to the Supreme Court," Greenberger said. "The more it becomes an issue in other jurisdictions the court will have to deal with it."
