Four Graduates Files Class-Action Lawsuit against Thomas Jefferson Law School

The class-action lawsuit filed against Thomas Jefferson Law School by four graduates, they were misled by the school's data on how many graduates land jobs as lawyers can go forward. Superior Court Judge rejected the school's moves to throw out the suit in a ruling issued November 30, 2012. The move clears the way for the case to go to trial. The lawsuit contends the school inflated statistics on the percentage of graduates who find work after getting law degrees, and they would never have enrolled in the school if they knew the employment data had been skewed. Thomas Jefferson officials tried to get the suit thrown out. Among other things, their lawyers argued that the lead plaintiff, Anna Alaburda, had turned down a full-time legal job paying $60,000 a year. But Pressman sided with the graduates. He wrote that as a consumer, Alaburda was purchasing a legal education.
