Touro College Sued For Suspending In Person Classes Without Refunds Has to Aug 14 to Reply

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 20 – Touro College was sued on May 22 in a putative class action by those who "paid tuition and fees for the Spring 2020 academic semester" but due to COVID-19 "lost the benefit of the education for which they paid." 

 On July 20 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held a proceeding in the case. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Castel asked the parties if they've heard of "hybrid," which he said existed before the COVID pandemic. Yes, they replied, but this is different. The plaintiffs' lawyer floated the idea of an unjust enrichment theory. 

   Judge Castel gave Touro until August 14 to either file an answer or file a pre-motion letter, presumably a motion to dismiss.

There will be many more such lawsuits. This one is Chapusette v. Touro College and University System et al., 20-cv-4018 (Castel)
