Complaint Against Thomas Jefferson Law School Alleging Fraud Survives Motion To Dismiss
A series of cases have recently been filed alleging that law schools have mislead student applicants. Most of these cases have been dismissed, but now comes word via an article in the National Law Journal, that one has survived a motion to dismiss, here. As the article states:
The fraud lawsuit against the Thomas Jefferson School of Law lives on.
A San Diego judge declined to dismiss the case — the first in a wave of suits brought by recent law graduates who claim their alma maters misled them with overly rosy assurances about their postgraduate job prospects.
Those suits have not fared well in court; five have been dismissed since March. However, as of the ruling in San Diego, three cases against California law schools have survived motions to dismiss.
