Professor Michael Greenberger

Washington Times, Austin American-Statesman, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, United Press International, Associated Content, Council on Foreign Relations, Executive Intelligence Review, The News-Press - After two days of testimony from financial experts in two congressional committees, oil speculators have become public enemy No. 1 on Capitol Hill. Now lawmakers are crafting legislation that would regulate energy trading and closely scrutinize speculative activity. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said, "There is clearly a supply and demand problem in the oil markets %85 but there is also clearly a speculation premium. We’re paying a tax that is being collected by speculators."

Professor Doug Colbert

The Daily Record - Hurricane Katrina, a typhoon in Burma, an earthquake in China, flooding in the Midwest the disasters seem to arrive with mind-numbing regularity. Which raises some questions: Armed with a grant of nearly $1.7 million from the Fetzer Foundation to research curriculum development on law, leadership, and democracy, the School of Law is about to find answers in a most pragmatic way. Earlier this month, five law students and two faculty members flew to Biloxi, Miss., to start assisting local residents still reeling from Hurricane Katrina with their civil legal needs. They will focus on consumer fraud, foreclosure scams, housing, and community development. The new clinic comes on the heels of other efforts by the law school to help Gulf Coast residents under the direction of Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School. "The Mississippi clinic is part of the democracy piece of the grant," said Brenda Bratton Blom, JD, PhD, a professor at the School.

Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The New York Times - A two-year state investigation into Baltimore’s spending practices took a major turn last week when officials raided the home of Mayor Sheila Dixon and left with several boxes of papers. Andrew Levy, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law and a defense lawyer with experience in public corruption cases, said, "One has to remember that the bar for getting a search warrant is actually not very high and any decent prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich. On the other hand," Levy said, "you also have to assume that a judge reviewing a warrant for a sitting mayor’s home is probably going to review that warrant pretty closely." But he added that for the time being, "all we can conclude is that watching investigators carry boxes out of a mayor%FDs house makes for good television, but it really proves nothing."
