A correspondent asks for an update in the case of Jin Li, the Brown professor who sued her university after its IRB restricted her research.
I checked Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) and found that on January 13, the parties jointly asked for an extension of the discovery deadline, telling the court "that they continue to negotiate a settlement of the claims. Due to the efforts made negotiating a settlement, only minimal discovery has been propounded so far. As such, if the parties are unable to settle, then the parties will need time to complete formal discovery."
I have posted the motion and other key documents on my IRB Documents page.
