Judge Dismisses Case Against Law School

A New York trial judge has dismissed a proposed class action brought against New York Law School by nine alumni who claimed the school misrepresented its graduates' success in finding legal jobs. Supreme Court Judge Melvin Schweitzer ruled yesterday that the school's job statistics were not deceptive and that prospective students had access to ample information to make their decisions. The suit is one of 14 similar cases brought by plaintiffs' attorneys against law schools around the country. One suit has survived a motion to dismiss. Other suits are pending.
