- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters that soaring oil prices are not the result of excessive speculation in unregulated markets, but a sign that more and more people are using energy. But Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said supply and demand is only one piece of the puzzle. "All of this could be laid at the steps of thinking that free markets will protect themselves," said Greenberger. "They need regulation and we learned that in the 1920s."

Robert Bell, JD, chief judge of Maryland's Court of Appeals, sent letters dated yesterday to every licensed attorney in Maryland more than 33,000 in all asking them to volunteer their time or donate money. "He’s acting in the best tradition of the judiciary," said Michael Millemann, JD, professor at the School of Law. "He’s not taking a position on the merits of any foreclosure dispute. ... All he’s saying is, ‘Let’s balance the process.’"
