This does not suprise me after hearing of the percentage of women who would place a GPS on their husbands/boyfriends if they could do it without their knowledge.
Talk about insecure.

When will women understand that we can't help but cheat... It's science ladies. The biology of man makes us this way. The woman however are not made this way so when you cheat it's just bad.

If she uses that as a part of the divorce case he can probably get it tossed because she was using "Expired chemicals" meaning the stuff could not be trusted for accuracy. Not to mention the fact she was willing to break the laws herself to do this. I'd say regardless of if he guilty or not, he can walk with little from his pocket

She's a scientist. You'd think she would already have known this.

According to this report she just offered her contention, but didn't present any evidence to the court--no dot blot assays or anything. Maybe she's lying or incompetent. In any case, I'd have to see hard evidence produced by an unbiased third party. Besides, the state lab is not there for her own personal use.

Why not let her do it. They have a company that charges money to do that. Why not let the scientists have fringe benfits?

She should sue for her job back. There is no law against what she did and it did not cost the department anything because the chemicals she used cannot be used for anything other than practice.

What she did was improper, but it was hardly grounds for firing someone.

I do not know why she needed to prove this. I think she had doubts about him already. She should have kicked his butt out. If a man acts this way who the heck wants him. (Maybe a women who likes to be mistreated.

I totally disagree with you. There are men that cheat and there are men that do not. Ladies if you suspect you are dating a cheater get away from this type of immature idiot.

Its funny the man always gets slammed as the cheater and women as seen as little angeles. Well folks when the man does cheat, dont forget there is also a woman involved? Takes two to tango my brothers and sisters, women as guilty as well. But society is always down on the man. Women are devious and dont paint them with a gold halo on top of their heads and innocent, because they are not.

Sorry, but it clearly against department policy by which she is expected to abide. Furthermore, running such tests utilise not only chemical reagents (which may or may not have been "expired) but also power supplies, electrophoresis equipment, centrifuges, micropipettors, gloves, buffers, agarose, nitrocellulose membrane and a whole bunch of other stuff, some of which gets tossed, some of which has to be cleaned, etc. What you are suggesting would allow her to run her own business on the side in a state lab, which is a quite ridiculous notion.

Sometimes people who are supposed to be smart end up not being smart because they have no common sense. This is a classic example.

I think he was dating Mayor Naugle. Oh wait, she would have to test the bathroom for DNA.
