For the past 10 years, Meru Foundation's original "flame-letter" sculptures have been misused, abused, and misrepresented by a self-promoting plagiarist who masquerades as a scientist, and who is obsessed with the golden mean spiral. Forced association with this aggressive plagiarist, and his odd, untrue, and unscientific claims, has damaged our work and our reputation. Based on its review of the evidence, the United States Federal Court for the Western District of New York at Rochester has now adjudicated our copyrights as valid and enforceable, has found that the plagiarist acted willfully and maliciously, and has provided us with proper remedies. The plagiarist and his associates also created false and disparaging personal and work histories, anti-Semitic characterizations, false claims of harassment, and even falsified mathematics to rationalize their behavior. All of these claims were dismissed "with prejudice" by the court.

The court-adjudicated Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order, call for the maintenance of a public Corrective Notice on the Internet.
