Germany's education minister has fallen from political grace, as officials with her former Duesseldorf University have found her guilty of plagiarism and stripped away her doctorate degree.
"I will not accept the decision," she said, in the AFP report, "and will file a lawsuit against it."
Schavan says she will not resign after a university stripped her of her doctorate because of plagiarism, and she vowed to fight the ruling.
