In an October 13, 2011 press release, New York Law School said it has asked a court to dismiss a lawsuit that claims that the school enticed perspective students to enroll by providing misleading information about post-graduation employment.

Commenting on the plaintiffs’ allegation, Venable partner Michael Volpe who represents New York Law School said, “The allegations are not only baseless, but also belied by the plaintiffs’ own complaint which demonstrates this case has nothing to do with New York Law School and everything to do with a crusade against the entire law school industry.” Volpe added, “The brief, filed Thursday with Manhattan Supreme Court, explains that no specific facts are alleged to support the plaintiffs’ claims, and even if the plaintiffs’ broad generalities were treated as completely true, there is still no legal basis for the suit.”
