It's been a few months since we had anything new to report on the cases brought by students claiming that their universities breached a contract or were unjustly enriched when they went online in Spring 2020.
This week, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that a federal district court has approved a $1.65 million settlement between Lindenwood University and a class of students who claim that they received a "subpar" online education when the campus closed due to COVID. The Post Dispatch reports that each student will receive $185, and the attorneys will receive $55o,000. The suit originally sought $5 million. A court dismissed a similar suit brought against Washington University.
