- A federal judge on Monday dismissed terrorism-related charges against a State University of New York at Buffalo professor who had been accused of illegally obtaining biological materials for an art exhibit to protest federal food policies, the Buffalo News reported.

- Yale University says that Aliza Shvarts, a senior, has assured officials that she did not really inseminate herself and induce miscarriages for her senior project, slated to go on display. Shvarts continues to imply otherwise. The university has upped the ante by saying that it will not permit her to display her work unless she signs an "unambiguous written statement that her installation is a work of fiction." A statement from the university also indicated that an instructor and an adviser failed in their jobs overseeing the work and questioning it, and that "appropriate action" has been taken.
