Steve Kirsch to sue Springer Nature for $250M over its “unethical retraction” of paper about COVID-19 vaccine harms

Vaccine safety advocate Steve Kirsch has announced a $250 million lawsuit against Springer Nature, the publisher of the Cureus medical journal, for its “unethical retraction” of a paper about the harms caused by Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines.

The said paper titled “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign” was allegedly retracted by Springer Nature over certain issues that couldn’t be remedied with a correction. Kirsch himself is listed as one of its co-authors alongside cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, nutrition educator M. Nathaniel Mead, research scientist Stephanie Seneff and others.

“It’s time for this unethical practice to stop. I hired a private investigator and was able to get the goods on the editors of Cureus, so I know for a fact [that] the paper was unethically retracted,” Kirsch wrote in a March 7 post on his Substack.

“It’s time for the journals to be held accountable. I’ll be filing suit against Springer Nature and Cureus seeking $250 million in punitive damages so that the journals think twice the next time they get a paper they don’t like.” (Related: More than 300 scientific papers on covid RETRACTED for fraud.)

McCullough also responded to the retraction in a separate piece on his Substack, accusing the journal of violating the guidelines set by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

“In a stunning act of scientific censorship, a little known publication integrity staffer [named] Tim Kersjes has retracted a manuscript … after [it] drew global attention. The paper called for a halt in COVID-19 mass vaccination based on a valid evaluation of the evidence,” McCullough wrote.

“The journal and its editors had the right to reject the paper any time during the review process. [But] once published, it is a violation of COPE guidelines to retract [a] paper without adequate justification,” the cardiologist continued. McCullough added that he and his co-authors “will proceed with publication in an alternate journal as this manuscript garners even more attention in the media because of censorship.”

Kirsch: Cureus retracted paper due to ad hominem attacks

According to Kirsch, their paper was retracted “not because of scientific merit,” but as a result of intimidation. “The editors received six ad hominem attack letters and decided we were ‘anti-vaxxers,’ and then the journal editors looked for excuses to retract the paper,” he wrote.

“The excuses were all without scientific merit. This was a sham retraction that injures our reputations and breaches the implied contract that the journal follows [in the form of] the COPE guidelines.”

Several experts wrote to Cureus to express their disagreement over the paper’s retraction. These include infectious disease researcher Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, alternative medicine advocate Dr. Harald Walach and professor Adrian Parker of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Dr. Annette “Boz” Bosworth also expressed her disgust over the move in a video.

“It’s an open secret – all the scientific journals have gotten away with this sort of unethical behavior in the past,” Kirsch concluded. “It’s time for this to stop so that the medical community will finally learn the truth about the COVID-19 vaccines.”
