MORGANTOWN, WV (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed the latest lawsuit against West Virginia University over a 6-year-old master's degree scandal involving the daughter of a former governor.

U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey issued an order Wednesday dismissing all three counts against WVU's former academic integrity officer, administration officials and Board of Governors.

Former business school dean Stephen Sears and former associate dean Cyril Logar argued that WVU ignored its obligation to repair their tarnished reputations since an academic-misconduct investigation ended.

They accused WVU of breach of contract and denial of their due-process rights.

It was their third lawsuit in four years. All have failed.

Last summer, WVU said there would be no further action against anyone involved in altering transcripts, creating grades and awarding an executive master's degree to Heather Bresch.
