Judge tosses suit against New York Law School for misleading jobs data

Graduates’ lawyer says the group plans to appeal

One lucky law school has escaped the wrath of angry graduates who slapped it with a lawsuit for allegedly misleading them about employment opportunities after graduation.

Yesterday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Melvin Schweitzer dismissed a $200 million class action lawsuit that nine New York Law School graduates filed against the school, accusing it of deceiving its students about job prospects and salaries. In their suit, the grads claimed the school published misleading data that misclassified graduates as fully employed when they only had temporary or part-time jobs. They also accused the school of skewing the data by creating post-graduate job programs in order to hire its own graduates.
