OMICS Group ordered to pay $50 million for deceptive practices
A few days ago, a U.S. District Court held Srinubabu Gedela and his companies, the OMICS Group, Inc., iMedPub, and Conference Series, liable for over $50 million. It also issued a permanent injunction against many deceptive practices on the part of this nest of companies and the various other entities through which they operate (such as Allied Academies, Meetings International, and Pulsus). Excerpts from the opinion that describe the deceptive practices and other information are posted on the Flaky Academic Journals blog.
