Texas professor accused of plagiarizing a grant proposal

Rambis Chu, a physics professor at Texas Southern University, is accused of copying a proposal written several years earlier by John Miller, a physics professor at the University of Houston. Chu's proposal was submitted to the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Chu got tenure shortly before the alleged plagiarism was discovered.

IPBiz notes that a plotline in a Law & Order episode more than 10 years ago ("Big Bang") involved the stealing of a grant proposal (on proton lifetime). Nothing new here.
