Baruch College Adjunct Is Fired After Accusing a Student, in Front of Peers, of Cheating

An adjunct instructor at Baruch College says he was fired for taking a hard line toward a student he believed was trying to cheat on a business-ethics examination, but the college says it was the instructor who crossed ethical lines.

The conflicting accounts center on Brian Moore, a part-time instructor in the department of marketing and international business, who was administering the exam three weeks ago when a student approached him.
