Americus-- Another lawsuit charges Georgia Southwestern University with discrimination and academic fraud--more lawsuits are expected.
A former professor, now teaching in Florida, claims that a department head forced him to give out high grades to other professors taking a computer class they never attended.
Another former Computer Science Professor, Mohammed Saheb, filed a similar federal lawsuit last month claiming he was denied promotion because he is Muslim.
Saheb, who lives in Albany, says he was forced to fabricate grades too, "This is not just allegations. These have been investigated by the G.O.C. through a long process."
The Georgia Commission on Equal Opportunity has been investigating these allegations as far back as 2003. The federal arm of the E.E.O.C gave the go-ahead for the lawsuits as a result of the investigation.
A university spokesman declined to comment. The Board of Regents is also named in the suit.
Saheb says any monetary reward as a result of the lawsuit will be used entirely for a scholarship fund for minority students.
