State officials led by the Attorney General attempted to revoke the tenure of Professor Dezso Benedek, an outspoken critic of then-UGA President Michael Adams, for academic fraud, claiming Benedek falsified transfer credit transcripts for a study
abroad program at a Hungarian university. State officials and the Attorney General secreted documents disproving the charges.
State officials manufactured evidence of the charges they knew to be false by impersonating UGA students to create a false paper trail—violating criminal identity fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, and federal student privacy statutes in the process, according to the written documentation and sworn testimony of state officials involved. These actions were known to UGA President Michael Adams, the UGA Office of Legal Affairs that approved the scheme in a written memorandum, and the Attorney General of Georgia—who prosecuted the knowingly false charges, using knowingly manufactured evidence, supported by knowingly perjured testimony.
Benedek is fighting knowing misrepresentations employed by the Attorney General in order to keep a witness with devastating information about the Attorney General tampering with evidence, influencing witnesses, and suborning perjury out of
Benedek is seeking sanctions against the Attorney General for fraud because of the attempt to withhold evidence of the Attorney General’s criminal wrongdoing.
