Joy Laskar, a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, along with a research engineer and an office administrator were jailed Friday after racketeering charges were filed against them, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The university says that the three funneled about $2 million in university funds to a company owned by Laskar and by Stephane Pinel, the research engineer. A lawyer for Laskar denied wrongdoing and said that Georgia Tech was trying to obtain a greater share of the funds from a business founded by Laskar in partnership with the university.
