Robert Maglievaz, MSPH, CIH, RS

• The West Volusia Beacon quoted Robert Maglievaz, MSPH, CIH, RS, assistant professor of Practice, Public Health, in the Jan. 24 story “Stetson University to take on food insecurity with speaker event, summit.” “There’s a public perception that people who go to food pantries are homeless or are going to starve to death,” Maglievaz said. “Most of the people work full-time jobs.”

• The New York Times Magazine quoted Law professor Ciara Torres-Spelliscy in the Jan. 25 story “‘Every Politician Has Got to Have Somebody That’s the Hit Man.’” Concerning political corruption charges against Larry Householder, speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, Torres-Spelliscy said the case could determine “whether we still have functioning anticorruption laws in the United States.”

Newsweek quoted Torres-Spelliscy in the Jan. 25 story “Donald Trump’s ‘Profound’ Damages Payment Could Cause Bankruptcy.” “Only Trump knows for sure what his finances actually are,” Torres-Spelliscy said. “But the combination of the New York civil fraud case and the E. Jean Carroll cases could be a one-two punch that triggers a bankruptcy. However, I doubt ex-President Trump would want to file for bankruptcy during an election year.”

Also, New York Law Journal cited a report authored by Torres-Spelliscy and others in the Jan. 16 article “A Long Way and a Long Time Coming,” about diversity on the bench within New York’s court system.
