Regarding the announcement by a member of the faculty concerning her intent to pursue litigation against the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), the following statement has been issued:
Caltech intends to vigorously defend this lawsuit, which is meritless. The institution is confident in its compliance with export control laws and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and regularly cooperates with government agencies, including the FBI, as appropriate.
The plaintiff, who was dissatisfied with the outcome of a recent internal campus investigation into her decision to list her cat as the author of a published abstract and omit recognition of a postdoctoral scholar who performed related research, suffered no retaliation and remains an active faculty member of the institution.
