"[N]ot every ailment afflicting society may be redressed by a lawsuit:" NYLS placement data class action lawsuit dismissed
ATL's Staci Zaretsky has the story. Quoting from David Anziska and Jesse Strauss litigation team's response to the New York Supreme Court's ruling:
Essentially, the judge’s two main points are that a reasonable consumer should have known better and should not have reasonably relied on NYLS’s detailed employment reports and that damages are too speculative. We believe that these issues are questions of fact — not law — and that the First Department will agree with us. This is one setback is a long-term process, and we always expected for many of these issues to ultimately be resolved on an appellate level. Moreover, we fully intend to soldier on and to sue many more law schools in the forthcoming weeks and months ahead.
