In a case set for trial in federal court this month, the university is suing Shaw and his scientific partner, saying they stole the school’s intellectual property by taking some of the fruits of their research with them.

The university accuses the researchers of patent infringement and violating an oath they signed not to enrich themselves by taking or acquiring plants, seeds and other biological material and continuing their research using descendants of ...
