Minnesota/Georgia Tech

Double Dippers Indicted?

Someone at Business Wire sent me this email:

Bill Gleason,

Dr. Gleason - Thought you would want to see this. 

 ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After more than three years, the State of Georgia’s Attorney General’s Office, working on behalf of Georgia Tech, sought to obtain an indictment today against professors Julie Jacko, PhD, and Francois Sainfort, PhD, concerning various allegations arising from their previous employment at Georgia Tech and their decision to leave Georgia Tech and transfer to the University of Minnesota. At the time of this release, a copy of the Indictment has not been made available. 

Georgia Tech has previously claimed that the professors hid their decision to leave and wrongfully took their compensation from Georgia Tech in late 2007/early 2008, after accepting employment at the University of Minnesota.
