10 Oct Peiffer Rosca Wolf Attorneys File Federal Class Action Lawsuit Against Walden University
The Peiffer Rosca Wolf Firm filed a nationwide class action lawsuit against Walden University and Laureate International Universities, commonly known simply as “Walden,” alleging that Walden violated doctoral students’ rights by creating a dissertation process which would be difficult, if not impossible, for students to timely complete (or complete at all).
The lawsuit alleges that Walden made representations about the time and cost of its doctoral program to prospective students, knowing that such representations were false. A copy of the full complaint is available here.
As part of the lawsuit, the Complaint requests that current and former students receive monetary damages, as well as pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, attorneys’ fees, and other costs of litigation. Additionally, the Complaint requests that the case be certified as a class action and that Walden be prevented from continuing with similar conduct in the future.
Peiffer Rosca Wolf lawyers often represent individuals harmed by fraud, or other unfair or deceptive practices and are continuing to investigate Walden’s alleged fraudulent and unfair and deceptive doctoral degree program and dissertation process.
