Dipak Das, the University of Connecticut scientist accused of fabricating 145 instances of research, is fighting his termination.
His attorney, William Gagne of Hartford, said his client will appeal the university's decision to terminate him to the UConn board of trustees. He said "denial of due process" is one of the grounds of the appeal.
"I think there was some serious procedural defects in how they held their hearing," Gagne said. The board of trustees meeting has not yet been scheduled.
If the board of the trustees upholds the decision to terminate, Gagne said, he and his client will take their appeal to the courts.
