Indiana Daily Student: Illinois professors sue over ethics exam

Two Southern Illinois University-Carbondale professors and the faculty union filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Illinois’ inspector general, demanding the state drop possible discipline over an ethics exam that 159 university employees failed in the fall.

The suit — filed against Inspector General James Wright and the Executive Ethics Commission — claims the state acted illegally by threatening to discipline faculty members who failed the online test.
