20 more law schools to be sued?

Postby sunynp » Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:56 pm

I guess this deserves its own topic as it is new, if not, Mods please accept my apology and move the thread:

Today, the lawyers leading the law school litigation squad announced that they are planning to target 20 more law schools for class action lawsuits over their allegedly deceptive post-graduation employment statistics. This time around, you may be surprised by some of the law schools that appear on their list.

Is your law school or alma mater going to be a defendant?

American University Washington College of Law
Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
Chapman University School of Law
Columbus School of Law, The Catholic University of America
Loyola Marymount University Law School
Loyola University Chicago School of Law
New England School of Law
Pace University School of Law

Interesting to see some upper T2/lower T1 schools on that list.

"Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Motion to Dismiss DENIED"

Edit - also found this bit interesting, from the law.com article:
"Anziska, Strauss and Raimond were in New York trial court on March 12 for a hearing on a motion to dismiss the suit they brought on behalf of graduates of New York Law School. The judge has yet to rule on the matter, but said that simply meeting the ABA's reporting standards for job placement was not an "absolute defense" against the plaintiffs' fraud claims. "

I posted these articles in a guy's thread about hofstra ( which is already being sue) and st johns (which is on the list) so I thought I might as well post them here. Not sure if many people here are interested, but it may be that these suits are going to gain more attention in the future. I would care if I was going to school at one of these places, and I would take a good look at the complaint, but to each their own. The links to the existing litigation can be found here:
