Prof Fired for Plagiarism Sues Teachers College for $200M

Prof Fired for Plagiarism Sues Teachers College for $200M
April 23, 2009

Madonna Constantine has sued Teachers College of Columbia University for $200 million. The New York Post reported that Constantine's suit charges that the findings of plagiarism that led to Constantine's dismissal as a professor were fabricated and that the proceedings against her amounted to an "academic lynching." The word lynching is an apparent reference to Constantine's claim that someone put a noose outside her office door. That claim -- made while the plagiarism allegations were being investigated but before they became public -- led to widespread sympathy for Constantine, but investigations of the noose incident never led to any findings.
