– Andrew Baida, JD, adjunct professor of appellate advocacy at the School of Law, writes a column about "a different kind of conflict that focuses on a weapon of mass destruction many of us first learned about in law school and now use in battling our adversaries in the fight to convince the appellate court to rule in our favor. That instrument of war is commonly known as IRAC, which stands for Issue, Rule, Application, and Conclusion."

– Jury selection begins Monday in the trial of a former Prince George's County police officer who shot two unarmed furniture delivery men in his home last year. In general, said Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law, it is difficult to persuade a jury to convict a police officer of a crime committed while the officer is carrying out his duties. But the circumstances in this case the shootings occurred at Keith Washington’s home, during a furniture delivery might mitigate the deference that jurors often give to officers. "I don’t know how much weight they will give to him being a police officer," Dash said. "I think they’ll go with the facts."

– A federal appeals court has rejected the Environmental Protection Agency’s approach to limiting mercury emitted from power-plant smokestacks, saying the agency ignored laws and twisted logic when it imposed new standards that were favorable to plant owners. Whatever the environmental impact, Robert Percival, JD, MA, professor at the School of Law and director of the Environmental Law Program, saw a clear legal signal in the decision. He said the judges showed surprising pique at the Bush administration. "It’s fairly clear that even judges that are, you know, not that fond of environmental regulation are kind of appalled at how willing the [administration] has been to try to bend the law," said Percival.
