Nothing Wrong? Or Fraudulent?

You decide. The retaliation I have suffered can't be undone either way. Unbeknownst to me Springer has retracted this article. SAGE, IEEE, and authors third version remain unaccounted for. IEEE still insists on keeping up the charade, even though the "developed" version of the IEEE article has now been retracted. The SAGE and the third version are verbatim copies of Springer.


UPDATE 4 (Mar 12, 2016): I am given to understand that a trial for 2:12-cv-06870-KSH-CLW is tentatively on the schedule for May 16, 2016. Lets hope that date holds.


UPDATE 3 (Dec 30, 2015): The docket shows that Judge Hayden has denied both my summary judgment motion and the one filed by IEEE. The opinion supporting the order is sealed. Indeed, that was a bit of a surprise. My current *extremely limited* understanding is that this outcome means the matter goes to a jury sometime in 2016 or as schedules permit. Please note that, I have left the docket text as it was below (from March 2015), PACER has the current state. Most of the conversation these days about this extremely public matter is in sealed form, so there is not much point in my trying to document it here. I see my job as long since done. What happens from hereon, a trial or an outcome in another form, is entirely upto the representatives, the court system, and the IEEE. They have more than adequate infromation with them to carry this to its conclusion.


UPDATE 2: The magistrate judge has granted IEEEs further motions to seal evidence based on the argument such as that Author Kragic may suffer harm from the disclosure, including from her own testimony. The orders should be available in PACER if anyone cares. This is an unbelievable low, as far as I am concerned, for higher education that either an educator or a publisher can even make such an argument about a publicly funded peer-reviewed article. I have also never understood why harm caused to me (a US citizen) by a foreign author -- obvious and ongoing -- does not have any corresponding recourse. I eagerly await Judge Hayden's opinion on the summary judgment motions, and will henceforth leave these pages in this state. I do not subscribe to the "too big to be wrong" philosophy but its not my job (nor within my means) to fix an academic system so broken.

UPDATE 1: I want it to be absolutely clear upfront. I want nothing to be sealed. This is not a society where people care for this stuff but I chose not to hide anything. Leaving a written record is all I will accomplish. It is NOT in my interest to seal anything and I have never asked or permitted anyone to do this. My attorneys have been forced by the legal process, and my opponents have a LOT to hide.

I am represented by Davis Wright Tremaine and Bienstock & Michael PC in the IEEE case. Here is a feedback link: R. Kumar -- Please do clearly identify yourself and provide contact information.

Note: To be completed as health and time permit. In the meantime, below is the complete docket from PACER as of March 2015:
