Dean Karen Rothenberg

Kaiser Health News Network – The shift in control of Congress has brightened prospects for approval of a law that would prevent employers or insurers from discriminating on the basis of genetic test results, according to legislators and other government officials. "To date, close to $3.5 billion has been appropriated to fund the promise of genomic research for the American people," said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School of Law, who testified in support of the measure before a House subcommittee. She added that the investment "has the potential to transform medicine as we know it. But unless Congress acts to address the perils associated with unauthorized dissemination of citizens’ genetic information, we may never be able to make the transition from research laboratory into the doctor’s office."

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

"The Marc Steiner Show," WYPR-FM, The City Paper, WVON-FM (Chicago) – "I have been amazed to discover how often and how pervasively racial violence figures into the history of small towns and cities throughout the United States," Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, writes in the introduction of her new book, On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-First Century. The book not only discusses lynchings on Maryland’s Eastern Shore but also offers South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, with its emphasis on restorative justice, as a way to finally bring all the stories of the shore’s painful past to the light to facilitate healing for individuals, communities, and organizations. Ifill’s colleague, Taunya Lovell Banks, JD, professor at the School, praised the book, and what it puts forward, as "groundbreaking."

Professor Rena Steinzor

Bloomberg.com – President George W. Bush issued an executive order curbing the power of agencies to regulate industry through "guidance" informal advice that falls short of official rules yet can still cost companies millions of dollars to comply with. Under the Bush executive order, regulators also now will have to estimate the total costs and benefits of planned rules. And the process will be overseen in each agency by a political appointee, another provision that public interest groups oppose. "There is no question who this panders to," said Rena Steinzor, JD, a professor at the School of Law who is critical of administration regulatory policy. "It's something business has wanted."
