Ind. Decisions - More on "Court says IU South Bend professor who filed suit wasn't defamed: IU found another professor responsible for plagiarism"

Updating this ILB post from Jan. 4, 2017, Margaret Fosmoe of the South Bend Tribune updates her earlier story by reporting today:

SOUTH BEND — Tenured longtime Indiana University South Bend business professor Douglas Agbetsiafa was fired in 2014 for plagiarism, according to Indiana University.

The Tribune made a formal request to IU about the circumstances of Agbetsiafa's departure. * * *

Agbetsiafa was a professor and at one time chair of IU South Bend's economics department. He was paid a salary of $108,351 in 2013, according to the state's online database of public spending.

A Jan. 4 Tribune article reported the outcome of a defamation lawsuit filed by IU South Bend business professor Peter Aghimien against another business professor, Mark Fox.
