A Hong Kong couple is suing former Harvard professor Mark Zimny after Zimny agreed to get their son into an elite Ivy-League university in return for over $2 million. Gerald and Lily Chow filed suit in U.S. District Court in Boston, claiming Zimny told them he would give the money to university authorities to gain admittance for the Chow’s son. Zimny denies the allegations.
“This is ridiculous!” Lily Chow said. “Forget the millions of dollars of bribe money! How could our boy fail to get into college, I mean he’s Asian for Christ’s sakes!”
