|Has anyone heard from the journal about this?|
Ironic that Casey is complaining that the news of the retraction was broken by people her before the author was notified, if EN&V is now breaking this news before giving the journal a chance to put out its public statement.
I've tweeted Ivan Oransky of Retraction Watch (and Reuters), hopefully he'll follow up.
I stumbled across this yesterday when my Google Alert for "Intelligent Design" activated.
There was no other mention of this on the internet and the publication itself seems silent. Of course, I believe nothing from EN&V without independent verification from knowledgable and honest sources, but I've heard nothing so far.
I'm wondering if there had been a "nuisance settlement" and the DI let confidential terms out of the bag. Often such settlements are limited to a public announcement of "Neither side admits libaility, we did nothing wrong and we won't do it again."
It won't be the first time that the DI suffered a self inflicted gunshot wound, requiring a podiatrist's attention, in legal proceedings.
Still, it should be news that a journal rescinding an article would be sued and then pay $10,000 to the aggrieved author. There are significant First Amendment issues at play that should have attracted attention.
