Austin, Texas, June 27, 2023 – In a nine-page ruling issued by a Student Conduct Board composed
of two university students and one university faculty member in a case brought by the university’s
Office of the Dean of Students against the firm’s client, a college freshman, the Board found that
the Office of the Dean of Students failed to prove its allegations that the student used Chat GPT.
Based upon claims by a university teaching assistant and professor, the university through its Office
of the Dean of Students asserted that the student utilized Chat GPT on an open-book final
examination. The student at all times vehemently denied the university’s allegations, but was forced
by the university to go through a formal evidentiary hearing in order to be vindicated.
Attorney Matthew K. Davis of the Dallas, Texas office of Jones, Davis & Jackson, PC served as the
student’s advisor in the university proceeding.
