United States District Court for the District of Maryland
860 F.Supp. 1091 (1994)
The United States (plaintiff) filed suit in federal district court against Dr. Prince Kumar Arora (defendant) for trespass and conversion alleging Dr. Arora intentionally tampered with and destroyed cells in a research project conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The specific cell line, Alpha 1-4, was being developed by Drs. Wong, Sei, and Arora, which would have had significant implications for studies of alcohol, Alzheimer’s disease, and neurotoxicity. Arora denied the allegations. After a bench trial, the court issued its opinion.
