MORGANTOWN (AP) -

Six years after a degree scandal shook West Virginia University and forced its president to resign, two professors are demanding their tarnished reputations be restored.

Former business school dean Stephen Sears and former associate dean Cyril Logar are suing in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg, accusing WVU of breach of contract and denial of due process.

They say WVU has ignored an academic integrity policy requiring "diligent efforts" to restore the reputations of people cleared of misconduct.

Spokeswoman Becky Lofstead declined comment Wednesday.

Last summer, Special Academic Integrity Officer Nigel Clark said there would be no further action against anyone involved in awarding an executive master of business administration degree to Heather Bresch.

She's the chief executive officer of Pennsylvania-based Mylan Inc. and the daughter of U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.
