Sunday, April 13, 2008Adjunct Professor Andrew LevyThe Daily Record
- When former state delegate Charles R. Boutin first sponsored a "viable fetus" bill in early 2004, not even the testimony of "Americaís Most Wanted" host John Walsh could get it out of committee. The law could be susceptible to legal challenges because it was passed in reaction to a news story, said Andrew Levy, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law and a partner with Brown, Goldstein & Levy LLP. "Laws like this don't necessarily have to hold together," said Levy. "Itís a feel-good law, not a law responding to a pressing problem."

Thursday, April 10, 2008Adjunct Professor Andrew LevyThe Gazette
- Prince Georgeís County prosecutors are scrambling to find a legal precedent to retry former school board member Nathaniel Thomas after dropping the case last week when key witnesses were barred from testifying. In pretrial motions on the day jury selection was supposed to begin, Thomasí lawyer, Bruce Marcus, complained that he had only received a transcript from a 2007 interview with witnesses the previous night. Andrew Levy, JD, a defense attorney and adjunct professor at the School of Law, credited Marcus for arguing that the last-minute transcript hurt Thomas' chances. "It is obviously a product of good lawyering," said Levy, a law professor for more than 20 years.
Tuesday, April 8, 2008Professor Michael GreenbergerThe Nation
- Somewhere out there is a lone voice of someone warning of impending disaster. We donít know who he is yet, by definition he "cries out in the wilderness" against powerful vested interests who are seeing to it that he is muffled. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former voice on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, warned the government a decade before the sub-prime mortgage disaster about the dangers of free-wheeling Wall Street practices and shadow financial markets. National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield warned for years against the folly of building houses in hurricane alleys, finally resigning his position in January in frustration.
