Ė Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the Schoolís Center for Health and Homeland Security, said in a live interview that while New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer must resign in the wake of a sex scandal, "Thereís a very good chance he will escape prosecution." Prosecutors may decide that his resignation-and possible loss of his bar license-is punishment enough for Spitzerís misdeeds.

- So how do you know whether to stay put and work to change things, or whether itís time to leave? Dana Morris, JD, assistant dean for career development at the School of Law, said that extreme dissatisfaction with your work can manifest itself with physical effects. Constant tiredness, sleeping more, and headaches before work can mean that you are depressed about your job, she said. Everyone has long days, Morris said, but "when that long day becomes weeks and weeks and months," it may be time to get out.

Ė Five years. More than $200 billion. And 22 government agencies combined. Even with such time and resources, itís debatable how much difference the Department of Homeland Security has made in protecting America in a post-9/11 world. Another expert called the department a "grand theory that fell down in practice" because it wrongly assumed 22 agencies could successfully work together under the same roof. "The value gained has not been much, if at all," said Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law, director of its Center for Health and Homeland Security, and a former Bill Clinton staffer. "I donít think weíre where we need to be or where we could be."

Ė A federal probe into unauthorized wheat futures trades that cost MF Global Ltd. $141.5 million will likely examine whether the trader who made the bets committed fraud, commodities law experts said Wednesday. Evan "Brent" Dooley, a registered representative of the firm who has since been fired, "substantially exceeded his authorized trading limit" in making trades of Chicago Board of Trade wheat futures, according to MF Global. "Those actions could rise to the level of criminal fraud," said Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law who teaches a course on futures, options, and derivatives. Greenberger is a former director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commissionís Division of Trading and Markets. "Clearly he exceeded his authority," Greenberger said of Dooley. "Here the market was defrauded. This was a fraud on the entire market, and [MF Global] was left holding the bag."
