A Southern California University Professor Sues a Student For Posting a Test Online

A Southern California university professor is suing a student he says tried to cheat on the midterm and final exams by posting them online in hopes of getting the answers.

David Berkovitz, who teaches at Chapman University’s business school, filed a federal lawsuit last week against a student identified only as “John Doe,” the Orange County Register reported.

The suit noted that the tests were distributed with a warning that they were copyright protected and weren’t to be reproduced.
