Lawsuits by Mountain State Students Progress

Several students have filed suit against Mountain State University after the school lost accreditation, and court dates are pending this month. The federal lawsuit filed by more than a dozen Mountain State University nursing students, and even though it's a federal suit, the case was sent to Jefferson County Circuit Court earlier this month after the students amended the lawsuit. The students claim the school just wanted increase enrollment so the school could bring in more federal student loan and grant money. This case will be part of mass litigation now and other lawsuits, and the court dates are coming later in August.
