Fantasy as fact: two viewpoints

I had an opportunity to discuss the "fantasy as fact"/false footnotes in law reviews issue with two legal people, one a publisher and one an academic legal ethicist. The publisher could not believe that material known to be false would not be retracted immediately. The academic understood that it would not be retracted, and saw no ethical issue with the failure to retract. He had not heard about the Jan-Hendrik Schon affair.
