Steve Humphreys Represents Georgia Academics in RICO Matter

Attorney Stephen Humphreys is representing two Georgia academics in lawsuits they filed involving charges of corruption against the University System of Georgia. According to an article on the website of WGCL TV in Atlanta,

CBS46 News has learned allegations of public corruption within the University System of Georgia have not been investigated by the office of Attorney General Sam Olens, which is now defending two lawsuits related to the claims.  
The suits filed individually by former Georgia Perimeter College president Anthony Tricoli and University of Georgia professor Dezso Benedek accuse various USG officials and Olens himself with violating the state's RICO statute. . . 
The office of attorney general is constitutionally required to prosecute public corruption within government and defend state agencies in litigation. . . 
"[The attorney general and university administration] attempted to take away [Benedek's] job, take away his pension, destroy his life and livelihood based on charges they knew were false," said attorney Stephen Humphreys, who represents both Benedek and Tricoli.
