Wall Street Journal Law Blogs Reports on Pigs/Judges in Black Robes Dismissing Fraud Suits Against ABA-Accredited Toilets
The Article: On October 15, 2015, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog featured a Sara Randazzo piece that was entitled “Jobless Grads Who Sued Law Schools Find More Rejection in Court.” Read this opening:
“Back in 2011, disgruntled law school graduates thought they found a way to recover some of their bad investment—by suing their alma maters for alleged fraud.
The proposed class actions started in San Diego and spread across the country, with at least 15 law schools accused of misleading recruits about their chances of finding decent-paying jobs.
In the years since, courts have knocked out the suits one by one, including the dismissal last week of a suit in Florida. Of the few that remain, none have been certified as a class action, meaning any recovery will be limited to individual plaintiffs.
The suits, which challenge the accuracy of the employment statistics and salary data reported by the schools, hit the courts during a particularly acute crisis point for would-be lawyers. Layoffs were rampant across the legal industry, and jobs were in short supply.
But courts didn’t buy the argument that the schools, most with low national rankings, defrauded applicants with misleading job placement numbers.
Last week, a U.S. district court judge in Florida, quoting an earlier decision tossing a suit against New York Law School, said prospective students at Florida Coastal School of Law are “‘a sophisticated subset of education consumers, capable of sifting through data and weighing alternatives.’”
In dismissing the case, the Florida judge said the plaintiffs knew Florida Coastal had some of the lowest admissions standards in the country, and because of that, a rosy employment statistic “would have been a red flag to a reasonable consumer.” The plaintiffs alleged Florida Coastal masked how many graduates held jobs actually requiring a law degree.
Michael Volpe, a Venable partner who defended New York Law School and Florida Coastal, said he believes the suits “had no basis in law or fact.” Educational institutions, he said, don’t “have an obligation to guarantee employment, nor did they ever guarantee employment.” [Emphasis mine]
The cockroaches never tire of chirping the line about how “educational institutions don’t guarantee employment.” The fact remains that these garbage corporations deliberately posted skewed and artificially high employment “placement” rates on their brochures, websites and recruiting CDs – for the purpose of attracting more applicants to their toilets. These pigs did not provide disclaimers on their websites, showing that the jobs included non-legal, part-time or temporary positions.
Other Coverage: On October 15, 2015, JDU poster “massivemissive” started a thread regarding this excrement. He used the same title as the Randazzo article, for his post. The following comment from “chicagojoe” – on the same day at 10:33 pm – sums this situation up perfectly:
“When the defendant in a fraud action has to rely on "but we told you we were lying!" and they still win at the pleading stage (usually), you know something has gone wrong in the judiciary.
The law schools effectively argued that they were immune from liability because they were so egregious in their lies that no reasonable person would rely on them even though they clearly intended the consumers to rely on them and alleged sophisticated consumers they enrolled actually did rely on them. Student consumers are thus both sophisticated and mindbogglingly dumb at the same time. The mental gymnastics these courts hae gone through to justify this crap is a rather clear example of legal realism.” [Emphasis mine]
Also, take a look at this comment from user “ichininosan” – from October 15, 2015 - 4:01 pm:
“Prospective students at Florida Coastal School of Law are “‘a sophisticated subset of education consumers, capable of sifting through data and weighing alternatives.’”
Plaintiffs knew Florida Coastal had some of the lowest admissions standards in the country, and because of that, a rosy employment statistic “would have been a red flag to a reasonable consumer.”
Apparently, FC$L applicants are simultaneously sophisticated and unreasonable or idiotic! Anyone with an IQ above room temperature realizes that the politicians in black dresses first reach the conclusion they want, and then find enough data to justify their decision. If you believe that “judges” look at all the evidence objectively, and achieve a decision based on reason and the facts of the case, then you truly are a naïve moron. In the suits against the law school, they chose – from the beginning – to protect the “educators” and administrators.
Hell, Bernard Madoff was hauled off to jail, for scamming fellow multi-millionaires, established trusts, banks, billionaires, development firms, etc. Those are the true sophisticated consumers and investors. Here is a list of his rich, greedy victims. You will notice names such as Brandeis University, Columbia University. They should have known better than to invest huge sums of money into his Ponzi scheme. However, these institutions and their officers suspended disbelief, because they were focused on getting big-ass results. Yet, they were entitled to civil penalties. Yes, that makes perfect sense, huh?!
Conclusion: In the final analysis, the law school pigs have achieved a Pyrrhic victory. The fact remains that ABA-accredited diploma mills gamed the $y$tem, in order to artificially inflate their US “News” & World Report ranking and garner more applications. Even the pieces of trash known as federal “judges” don’t dispute that, people. Hell, in many of the decisions, these cockroaches have essentially declared “Yes, the law schools lied about their numbers. It should be obvious to anyone. And, by the way, those applying to these in$titution$ are sophisticated consumer of education services. Tough luck.” While these swine have been protected by their spiritual brethen in the judicial $y$tem, applications have continued to dwindle for several years. Some commodes have merged, and several trash pits have bought out “professor” contracts. The bitches and hags are now desperate for applicants to enroll/financially ruin.
