Professor Accused in Plagiarism Case Sues

From Times Wire Reports

A professor has filed suit accusing Ohio University of defamation, saying school officials wrongly accused him of allowing mechanical engineering students to plagiarize.

The lawsuit by Jay Gunasekera also claims that university officials characterized the former department head as unethical, dishonest and supportive of academic fraud. Thirty-seven engineering graduates were accused of plagiarizing parts of their master’s research projects.
