UC San Diego wins Alzheimer’s re­search law­suit:

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

A judge has ruled that con­trol of a land­mark pro­ject on Alzheimer’s dis­ease be­longs to the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia at San Diego — hand­ing the school a ma­jor vic­tory in its law­suit against the Univer­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. UC San Diego sued af­ter Alzheimer’s re­searcher Paul Aisen and other em­ploy­ees trans­ferred to USC last month. The law­suit al­leges USC, Aisen and other de­fen­dants con­spired to il­le­gally trans­fer the Alzheimer’s Dis­ease Co­op­er­a­tive Study to the Los An­ge­les-based univer­sity. Su­pe­rior Court Judge Ju­dith Hayes on Fri­day did not im­me­di­ately de­cide on UC San Diego’s re­quest for mon­e­tary dam­ages, the Los An­ge­les Times re­ported. Aisen re­signed in June from UC San Diego, where he had over­seen the study since 2007, to be­come found­ing di­rec­tor of an Alzheimer’s in­sti­tute at USC.
