NYLS sued by graduates for lying about employment stats

Its about time! We can only hope this leads to more law suits against bottom-feeder schools like NYLS and Cooley (also sued). If enough of these suits are filed and get beyond dismissal and/or MSJ, the Law school industry will have to react and start to a) report accurate employment data; and b) show that the price of education does not equal the product that is being sold.


So good luck to the plaintiffs. They have a tough road ahead. Few institutions are as well funded as law schools and the law schools will surely put up a defense that will make a tobacco executive nostalgic.

"Cooley, based in Lansing, Michigan, accused the law firm of false statements on websites to “incite” the readers and to “troll” for plaintiffs for a purported class-action lawsuit."

So because the law firm did it via craigslist, etc., instead of with expensive commercials on late night TV, they are "trolling?" It should take a court all of 18 minutes to dismiss those claims. How absurd?

Interesting lawsuits....if they are successful, I wonder if we'll see someone bold and attack a T15 school....if there were a willing lawyer I know I'd join the class. :twisted:
