Background screening.

Background screening. Dr. Paul Fenje was accepted into a residency program at the University of Illinois based on his representations about his exemplary background. After Fenje began working, his supervisor found that Fenje had lied about his past. Fenje was fired. He then sued the University of Illinois and his supervisor for violating his due process rights. The court found that the university was within its rights because Fenje obtained the job under false pretenses. (Fenje v. Feld, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, No. 04-1056, 2005)
