Abstract

In a recent paper in European Journal for Philosophy of Science Iñaki San Pedro put forward a conjecture regarding the relationship between no-conspiracy and parameter
independence in EPR scenarios; namely, that violation of the former implies violation of the latter. He also offered an argument supporting the conjecture. In this short note I present a method of constructing counterexamples to the conjecture and point to a mistake in the argument.
