0xDE, Gene Expression, gnxp, Good Math, Bad Math, Greedy, Greedy Algorithms, Respectful Insolence, and romunov are reportings that Shelly Batts (a U of Michigan Neuroscience PhD candidate) has been threatened with lawyers after writing a critical interpretation of a recent article.

The academic and applied consequence of these nuisance lawsuits is increasingly well known. Just google “JL Kirk,” for example, to find out what happens when lawyers threaten bloggers after a negative review.
