Joyce Carol Oates wrote a short story about a member of an English dept. who is accused of plagiarism by colleagues presumably jealous of his success. His bid for tenure seems doomed. He disappears for awhile before the tenure meeting. On the day of the meeting, each faculty member on the committee finds a large envelop in his/her mailbox. In the folders are detailed examples of each teacher's own plagiarism. Naturally, he gets tenure!
