    Fantastic news :)
     
  10. The absurdity of the whole thing makes me think of "The Chewbacca Defence" :p

    (and not any sleight on Mikovits, merely the damn absurdity of such occuring in the first place! Jeesh, talk about a farce)

    Clarification from Heidi Bauer on my FB page:

    "Just to make it clear...WPI did not drop charges against Dr. Judy Mikovits. The district attorney dismissed it citing not enough evidence, which is fair. There never was real evidence. She was within her legal rights to take HER notebooks to protect patient privacy under HIPPA. When the grant is under your name, you are the sole responsible party in charge of protecting privacy and overseeing ethical work is being done in the lab."

    That sounds fair enough - about time the WPI dropped the whole pathetic fiasco.

    Here is a scientist who sought (and still does) the complexities of ME - I wish her and all who go with her in sincere and knowledgeable continued researches - sorry cut the crap - here is one of our most dedicated scientists.

    Even Ghandi may have approved.

    Finally, justice for Judy. Now they need to throw out the civil suit too!

    Very smart move on the NV DA's part. It was the logical thing to do, but I was surprized it took this long. May have waited to make it appear that there was a lot of information to sort through or it's possible they have to wait a certain amount of time to give people a chance to come forward with information. Just babbling and have no idea how this works.

    This is just great wonderful news and very glad to here it. I'm sure Judy is relieved and this has to take a burden off of her mind. I would imagine this will allow to be even more focused on her work and result in the most accurate data possible from her. Hooray for Judy!
