    Default Falsely Accused of Cheating

    I am currently a student on the National Dean's list who was accused of cheating. I eventually spoke to the Director of the math department and he agreed with me that it was a misunderstanding. I am upset and angry is because one of the ladies that claimed she caught me cheating told people outside the math lab who just so happens to go to church with my grandma and lives next door to my mother. Another lady accused me of cheating in front of other students. I am angry because they did not have any grounds for these accusations because things aren't always what you think they are. I feel that my character has been defamated. I want to know if I have a case and if so is the school liable as well.

    Possibly, depending upon the full facts and circumstances and the specifics of their allegations.

    Probably not.

    If you are interested in pursuing a legal action, you should have your situation reviewed by a local lawyer who handles defamation actions.
