USA Today featured Haub Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "'Release the transcripts': Ben Crump slams decision in Breonna Taylor case, calls out systemic racism in the legal system"

USA Today featured Haub Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "'Release the transcripts': Ben Crump slams decision in Breonna Taylor case, calls out systemic racism in the legal system"

Bennett Gershman, a nationally recognized expert on prosecutorial ethics who teaches law at Pace University in New York, said under those rules prosecutors could elect to reveal their grand jury recommendations or keep them confidential. He said he is not aware of any prosecutor being sanctioned for disclosing a recommendation. 

Grand jury proceedings are secret for four reasons, the U.S. Supreme Court has said:

  • To prevent those under investigation from interfering with witnesses;

  • to encourage witnesses to speak freely;

  • to reduce the chance that a person about to be indicted will flee;

  • and to protect innocent people who may be grand jury targets but are never indicted.

USA Today featured Lubin Professor Andrew Coggins in "Why are airlines still flying in and out of US coronavirus hot spots and will they continue?"

To avoid conditions becoming more dire, Andrew Coggins, a clinical professor of management at Pace University, suggested measures such as taking the temperature of passengers before they board planes, to avoid halting flights. No U.S. airlines have announced such measures before takeoff.

“It’ll wreak havoc on the plane turn-around times, but it’ll signal to the passengers that the airlines take their health seriously,” Coggins said. “If you know or have indications that you may be sick, you should not fly!”

USA Today featured Lubin Professor Andrew Coggins in "'They're getting pummeled': Travel industry reeling from coronavirus concerns, anxiety"

Andrew Coggins, a clinical professor of management at Pace University, said fear is a cruise company's chief enemy. "It's probably more psychological, especially when the government comes out and says, 'Don't take cruises,'" he added. "The industry is pretty resilient. It's a question of how long this will last."

USA Today featured Haub Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "Four career prosecutors are now the target of Trump's anger. Here's how they came up with a stiff sentence for Roger Stone"

USA Today featured Haub Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "Four career prosecutors are now the target of Trump's anger. Here's how they came up with a stiff sentence for Roger Stone"

Bennett Gershman, a Pace University School of Law professor and a legal expert on prosecutorial misconduct, called Trump’s accusation "an absurd characterization." "The only way you could argue that," he said, "is if the prosecutors were acting in bad faith—they don’t believe that he (Stone) deserved this kind of punishment and they were making the sentencing recommendation for, let’s say, political reasons."

02/12/2020

USA Today featured Lubin School of Business professor Andrew Coggins in "As coronavirus spreads on cruise ships, what does it mean for cruisers and cruise lines? 'It's day-by-day'"

But are cruise lines doing the right things?

Andrew Coggins, professor at the Pace University Lubin School of Business and cruise industry analyst, called the blanket ban on China, Hong Kong and Macao passport holders "worrying."

"That smacks of racial/ethnic paranoia," he said in a statement. "Royal Caribbean has invested much time and treasure developing their China Market over the past 12 plus years. China is a proud and ancient country. Such a blanket ban will not go unnoticed."
