Graduates from Albany Law, Brooklyn Law, California Western, Chicago-Kent, DePaul Law, Florida Coastal, Golden State, Hofstra Law, John Marshall Law School, Southwestern, USF Law and Widener Law filed 11 separate proposed class actions against their former schools, claiming the institutions misled them about job opportunities.

In 2011, three separate suits were filed against Thomas M. Cooley Law School, New York Law School and Thomas Jefferson School of Law for allegedly defrauding prospective students by inflating job-placement data.

The Wall Street Journal reports that David Anziska, plaintiffs’ attorney in three of the lawsuits, and the students’ other lawyers’ goal is to sue 20 to 25 law schools every few months.
