One running list documented 240 tuition refund lawsuits filed last year. But judges are ruling that students don’t have a leg to stand on. Just this week, a U.S. District Court judge in Massachusetts threw out a case against Harvard University after finding students had no evidence they were promised in-person classes, Reuters reports That seems par for the course, including at: University of the Pacific, which had been in court since last May. The “unjust enrichment” case was dismissed with prejudice this month. Brown University, along with three other Rhode Island institutions, which dodged a class-action breach-of-contract lawsuit when it was dismissed in March.
Texas A&M System, where plaintiffs voluntarily dropped a class-action lawsuit in November.
