Acclaimed Black Scholar Accusing Claudine Gay of Plagiarism Sics Lawyers on Harvard Board, Demands ‘Remedies’ School Will Make in Wake of Scandal

New York Post

An acclaimed African-American scholar who has accused Harvard’s outgoing president Claudine Gay of ripping off her work is demanding to know how the school will fix its approach to plagiarism after it’s board stood by the embattled academic. 

Attorneys representing Carol Swain, a former political science professor at Vanderbilt University, sent a letter to the Harvard Corporation, the school’s highest governing body,  requesting to know what “remedies” the Ivy League institution seeks to make for the unauthorized use of her work.

“Through its acts, omissions, and public statements surrounding the use of Dr. Swain’s work, the Harvard Corporation is now invested in this matter and its subsequent outcome,” attorney Robert Kleinman wrote on behalf of Swain.
