Last month, Venable obtained a dismissal of all claims brought by a putative class of New York Law School students and alumni. The suit alleged that students and applicants relied on misleading information provided by the school, concerning its graduates’ employment and salaries, in making their decision to attend New York Law School. On March 21, a New York Supreme Court judge dismissed each of plaintiffs’ claims. The plaintiffs announced last week they would appeal the judge’s decision. News of the appeal was featured in Law360
on April 6, 2012.
Commenting on the appeal, Venable partner Michael Volpe
, who represents New York Law School, told Law360
, “I remain confident that Judge Schweitzer wrote a thorough, comprehensive and detailed decision, looking at the issues very carefully, and I feel confident it will be confirmed on appeal.”
