Justice Continues To Be Served

Columbia has rescinded Bellesiles' Bancroft Prize.

Adding injury to insult, he has to reimburse the prize money as well.

Wonder if Judge Reinhardt reads the NYT?

Bancroft is asking for the money back, but they probably have no recourse if Bellesiles decides to keep it.

I don't know what the limits are in New York (which is what I presume the jurisdiction would be, though I suppose it could be Atlanta, since that's Bellesiles' residence, or was), but I'd think that small-claims court would work nicely.

They should make sure he pays, even if it costs them more than they actually get, just to establish the principle.

I was pleased when the members of what seemed to be Emory's attempt at a whitewash panel [given the restrictions imposed] nonetheless made their contempt and belief of fraud easily discernible. This isn't bad, either.
