Ohio U. revokes degree of plagiarist

Further to the Ohio University plagiarism scandal, one student apparently has been stripped of his degree. THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH reported on March 29, 2007:

Ohio University revoked the master's degree of a student who had extensively copied material and had been deceptive in writing his thesis, school officials said yesterday. (...) Dennis Irwin, dean of OU's Russ College of Engineering and Technology, said the person whose degree was revoked was not given the option of rewriting his thesis. He appealed the recommendation of the university's Academic Honesty Hearing Committee to revoke his degree, but his appeal was turned down, Irwin said.
