Another Case of Resume Fraud Hits the Wires
January 22, 2009
According to the Sun Herald
Louisiana-Lafayette hired Cyprien in May 2004. It fired him July 16, 2004, after The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported that his degrees were from an online school – and he had not graduated from Texas-San Antonio, as a resume claimed.
He testified in a sworn statement that he had failed a foreign language requirement, leaving him one class short of graduating from UTSA, and got online bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Lacrosse University, according to the ruling.
Lacrosse, based in Bay St. Louis, Miss., is not recognized by major accreditation agencies. It moved from Louisiana to Mississippi in 2002, after the Louisiana Board of Regents voted not to renew its license.
Cyprien said he was defamed because he gave the correct information in another form, and hand-delivered a correct resume before a student worker at Oklahoma State, where he worked prior to Louisiana-Lafayette, mistakenly faxed the inaccurate one.
La Supreme Court dismisses coach suit vs. ULL

NEW ORLEANS — The Louisiana Supreme Court has thrown out a defamation and breach of contract suit brought by a college basketball coach fired just months after he was hired.
The University of Louisiana-Lafayette had a valid reason to fire Glynn Cyprien and did not defame him when it accused him of resume fraud, the high court ruled Wednesday.
