Here is a report in the Detroit Free Press about a class action settlement for court reporting trade school students at the Academy of Court Reporting, which is owned Delta Career Education Corp. The report is a bit sketchy. I’m assuming that the school is in Michigan, though that’s by no means clear. The settlement for more than 3200 students is valued at $32 million. The report indicates that the case was filed in 2007.
The settlement caught my eye because I continue to represent trade schools students pursuing claims against Western Culinary Institute, which is owned by Career Education Corp. I hope to do a brief update on the progress of that case later this week.
