Temple Professor Continues Long Legal Journey to Sue FBI for Wrongful Prosecution
On Wednesday, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia heard the case of a Temple University physics professor suing an FBI agent and the U.S. government. In 2015, the professor, who is Chinese-American, was arrested, and accused of selling trade secrets to China, only for the government's case to collapse months later.
This is part of a series of high-profile prosecutions of Chinese-American scientists in recent years. WHYY’s Alan Yu has more on what happened in court.
