 Case Number: I-17-0004-O                                                                    Page 1 of 1


         In multiple complaints, a scientist1 alleged at least six researchers had committed crimes by
         publishing in a research field that he considered he owned. Despite our request to clarify his
         allegations and to provide evidence supporting them, the scientist did not do so. Lacking sufficient
         substance to pursue the allegations, this case is closed.
