- A former Navy sailor faces a trial beginning Monday on terrorism charges alleging he communicated with suspected terrorists while on duty and leaked information that could have doomed his own ship. Prosecutors allege that Hassan Abu-Jihaad sent details of the location and vulnerabilities of a Navy battle group to suspected terrorism supporters in London. "If we have members of our military who are aggressively passing on secrets to terrorists, that’s cause for concern," said Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "It’s a very aggressive act that would have brought real danger to the United States."

– With a less-than-definitive opinion from a federal appeals court, Baltimore County officials say they have no intention of scrapping their restrictions on the location of methadone clinics. "The way Baltimore County has avoided the issue in this case would not be likely to happen again," said Ellen Weber, JD, an assistant professor at the School of Law and a lawyer involved in another lawsuit against the county over its methadone clinic restrictions.

– Barbara Billauer, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law and president of the Foundation for Law and Science Centers Inc., co-wrote an Op-Ed with Norman Bailey, PhD, MA, president of the Institute for Global Economic Growth, saying, "The debate over illegal immigration has fluctuated between those who wish to adopt the most draconian measures to stop―or even reverse―the flow (often led by politicians with Italian, Irish or German names) and those who want to legalize most if not all illegals in the United States outright, in a form of amnesty. The reasons of the latter group are easy to comprehend: We are all (with the exception of the Native Americans) descendent of immigrants; we are compassionate people, and/or frankly because we need them in the labor force. The reasons of the first group are less laudatory. The fear of terrorist infiltration deserves special mention: To the extent we change or fashion policy based on fear of outsiders, the terrorists have won."

– President Bush issued a stark warning to Congress: Renew the so-called "Protect America Act," which allowed the government to eavesdrop on certain phone calls and e-mails without a court order, or aid the terrorists. Michael Greenberger, JD, a former senior Clinton Justice Department official, a professor at the School of Law, and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said it appeared as if "the channels may have been subverted in order to reach a result that would allow the Central Intelligence Agency or others to conduct interrogative techniques that clearly violate law." U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Friday sounded skeptical that there was any wrongdoing. "I have no reason to believe that politics was involved in that or any other analysis," he said.

– In her Op-Ed "Thrown Back," Rena Steinzor, JD, a professor at the School of Law, president of the Center for Progressive Reform, and author of Mother Earth and Uncle Sam How Pollution and Hollow Government Hurt Our Kids, wrote, "The Bush administration received a judicial rebuke long in the making this month when an exasperated panel of federal appeals judges held that the Environmental Protection Agency’s weak-kneed approach to mercury pollution failed to follow the law. The court killed the rules and sent them back to the EPA for revision."
