Oluwaloseyi Babaeko writes from School of Politics and International Studies,44,com/8OSCFXTd6B Pop Crave (@PopCrave) April 14,Michigan filed a lawsuit against several anonymous posters on the site claiming that their comments about apparent discrepancies in his papers constituted defamation and had caused him to lose a job offer from the University of Mississippi He subpoenaed PubPeer for any information about the commenters but lawyers representing the website filed a motion to quash the subpoena in December Earlier this month Wayne County Circuit Judge Sheila Gibson mostly sided with PubPeer but requested a separate hearing to discuss a comment from one user It describes reporting discrepancies in Sarkar’s papers to Wayne State officials and receiving a response from the school’s secretary to the board of governors:"Thank you for your e-mail … As you are aware scientific misconduct investigationsare by their nature confidential and Wayne would not be able to comment on whetheran inquiry into your allegations is under way … ” In yesterday’s hearing the judge inferred that the anonymous poster had accused Sarkar of misconduct in a previous e-mail says Nicholas Jollymore a libel lawyer with Jollymore Law Office PC in San Francisco California who is representing PubPeer and attended the hearing Gibson asked that PubPeer turn over identifying information to her and scheduled another hearing next Tuesday to decide whether to give that information to Sarkar and his lawyer Jollymore says PubPeer doesn’t have the person’s name address or e-mail just the IP address from which the comment was posted which is outside the United States Sarkar would still need to request the person’s identify from the Internet service provider Jollymore says Sarkar’s lawyer Nicholas Roumel of Nacht Roumel Salvatore Blanchard & Walker PC in Ann Arbor Michigan did not immediately respond to a request for comment but has indicated that he wants to ask the PubPeer user questions about how Sarkar lost his job offer at the University of Mississippi “[W]e have no intention of publicly exposing this person’s name at this time we just want to find out who it is” Roumel told Retraction Watch “We are willing to enter into a protective order and protect the identity of the commenter and not expose it” Still Jollymore contends that turning over information to anyone violates free speech protections under the US Constitution for the site’s users One of PubPeer’s (anonymous) moderators told ScienceInsider: “If this decision creates a precedent future online comment will be limited to trivial matters while all discussion of serious matters will be discouraged by fear of legal entanglement” Jollymore along with lawyers at the American Civil Liberties Union representing PubPeer intend to file an emergency appeal tomorrow to have Tuesday’s meeting canceled and hope to bring the case to the Michigan Supreme CourtPanaji: Noted ecologist Madhav Gadgil has warned Goa may face the same fate as the flood-battered Kerala if it does not take precautions on the environmental front Like in some other states Goa too is witnessing activities which are driven by greed for unlimited profits said Gadgil who headed a committee that authored a widely debated study on the Western Ghats a few years ago An flooded area in Kerala Reuters "Certainly all sorts of problems are beginning to surface on the environmental front in the Western Ghats Goa of course does not have Western Ghats which are so high as in Kerala but I am sure Goa will also experience all sorts of problems" he said reacting to the worst-ever floods in the southern state He said the reason for not taking any environmental precaution (in general) is purely greed for unlimited profits "You have seen it in Goa too The Union government-constituted Justice MB Shah commission has estimated illegal profits of Rs 35000 crore from illegal mining" he said "There is also enormous profit in the business of stone quarrying while there is very little investment" he added while talking about rampant hill in the Western Ghats "The greed for enormous profits has been allowed to go on unchecked which has actually worsened economic disparity in the society "So now those who are making money through these means are even more effective in getting the government allow this kind of rampant illegal behaviour" Gadgil said The ecologist said governments have been lax on implementing environmental norms "The central government is actually bending over backwards to make sure the National Green Tribunal does not function properly" he said Gadgil had done extensive study on Goa’s environment based on the data provided by iron ore mining companies in their Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) reports in 2011 He had then said the mining companies submitted false information in their EIA reports "In Goa they had asked me to look into the impact of mining on environment Every EIA suppressed fact about hydrological impact of mining" the 73-year-old expert said "On `sadas’ (plains) of Goa there are a lot of streams which are originating but they dont mention about them in their EIA reports All kind of false statements are made in these reports" he said Gadgil had headed the Western Ghats Ecology Expert Panel (WGEEP) set up by the government The WGEEP in its 2011 report had recommended that several areas in Kerala which come under the Western Ghats be classified as ecologically sensitive The panel had recommended strict curbs on mining and quarrying and on use of land for non-forest purposes on his Facebook wall.
