Keith's note: According to Dr. Philip Schein he had clearly stated his intention to retire from the CASIS board several months ago after 5 years of service. He then formally submitted a letter of resignation to the CASIS board. He was not voted off of the board or "removed" as we previously reported. Our original posting was based on multiple sources within and outside of CASIS. Alas, CASIS itself simply refuses to formally respond to media inquiries - so there is no way to confirm - anything - with CASIS. We regret this error and posted this update within minutes of being informed by Dr. Schein.
