Arraignment postponed again for UCLA, Harran in Sheri Sangji case

The University of California, Los Angeles, and chemistry professor Patrick Harran were scheduled to be arraigned today for felony violations of California labor laws, but the case has been delayed again, reports C&EN SCENE editor Michael Torrice. Arraignment is now scheduled for April 11. The case arose from a 2008 fire in Harran’s lab that led to the death of researcher Sheharbano (Sheri) Sangji.

Torrice says that the courtroom proceeding was much the same as last month: Attorneys spoke privately with the judge, then stepped back to publicly reschedule the arraignment.
