Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
That is a terrible situation you were placed in
I suggest that you will want to take the matter to the Dean as soon as possible.
You may have a defamation lawsuit against the Teacher and so that is something you can mention to the Dean
You can state that you want a public apology. That you have never cheated and you feel you were singled out because of your national origin
Then I suggest you consult with a local attorney who will decide if this teacher has enough assets to sue -
No attorney will take a case where the person does not have assets to recover when you win
thanks,but she is the head of a department , she dont teach, doesnt that mean she is representing the university
Yes If she was doing this as a representative of the Department.
Yes, so you will need to consult with a local attorney and decide if you were defamed and to what extent.
Also You should go to the Dean and tell what happened and how you were embarassed
And that you are going to seek the advice of a local attorney because she was accusing and demanding without proof

I wish you the best of luck with this.
