Las Vegas SUN: German Researcher Stripped of Doctoral: "Schoen, now 34, was fired by Bell Laboratories in New Jersey in September 2002 after an outside review committee concluded that he made up or altered data 16 times while working in the hot fields of superconductivity and molecular electronics.
Findings he helped research were published in prominent journals such as Science, Nature and Applied Physics Letters. "

They are removing is doctorate credentials. It should be really hard to go from possible Nobel winner to losing everything ... but if he did fake all the work, he deserves it.
