Yale wins lawsuit over faked doctorate

Dongguk University allegedly suffered reputational harm after hiring a professor on the basis of a false Yale degree

Yale University is off the hook for mistakenly confirming the credentials of an art history professor to a South Korean university.

The 2nd Circuit ruled on Thursday that the Ivy League institution was not guilty of negligence, defamation and reckless conduct in the case, since its administrators did not act with actual malice when confirming the degree.
