U. of Colorado, Denver librarian Jeffery Beall has been mentioned a couple of time on infoDOCKET lately. We first shared a post about him and his work to shed light on predatory/questionable open access publishers when he was featured in a NY Times article last month.

Today, The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Beall is being threatened with a $1 billion lawsuit by OMICS Publishing Group, an OA publisher based in India (with an office in Los Angeles) that he has posted about on his Scholarly Open Access blog.
