Another Suit

Ohio State University's Carlo Croce is being sued by his former lawyers for failing to pay, Retraction Watch reports.

In 2017, Croce, a noted cancer researcher, sued the New York Times for defamation following its publication of an article that recounted allegations of research misconduct that had dogged Croce for a number of years, but a judge dismissed all but one claim of that suit in 2018. He further sued a Purdue University professor quoted in the Times article, but lost that case, as Retraction Watch reported last month. Croce also sued Ohio State after he was forced out as department chair in November 2019.

According to Retraction Watch, Croce is now at the receiving end of a lawsuit. It reports that the attorneys who represented him until August 2018, Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter, are suing him for nonpayment of fees to the tune of more than $920,000, which it says it has tried to collect since June 2018.
