Class Action Refund Lawsuits Against Higher Educational Institutions - CICU Complimentary Webinar
May 14, 2020
By: Jonathan B. Fellows, Suzanne M. Messer, Gregory B. Reilly
Hosted by CICU, Presented by Bond Attorneys
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many universities and colleges in New York suspended in person classes and required students to vacate school housing. In the last few weeks students have filed a wave of class action lawsuits against these higher educational institutions claiming breach of contract, unjust enrichment and other legal claims for alleged failure to refund their students for tuition, room and board and various activity fees. Many more of these lawsuits are anticipated. Please join Bond attorneys Jonathan Fellows, Suzanne Messer and Greg Reilly on Thursday, May 14 at 9:30 a.m. for a webinar that will cover the below timely topics:
- Review of the underlying legal claims in these refund class actions, including defenses to these claims and the viability of motions to dismiss;
- Review and analysis of the potentially available procedural defenses and defenses to class certification; and
- The practical steps higher educational institutions should be taking to prepare for and to defend against these putative class action refund lawsuits.
This webinar will help you get up to speed so you may take practical steps to successfully defend against the class action refund epidemic.
