Brief Supports District Court Order Blocking U.S. Dept. of Education from Giving Only Partial Relief to Defrauded Students
Department Granting as Little as 10% Loan Relief to Former Corinthian Students
NEW YORK – Today, New York Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood – part of a coalition of 8 Attorneys General – filed an amicus brief in support of students defrauded by Corinthian Colleges (Corinthian). The brief, filed in Calvillo Manriquez v. DeVos in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, supports a district court’s order halting the U.S. Department of Education (Department) from its practice of giving only partial relief to defrauded students. The Department has been granting as little as 10 percent loan relief to students who attended the now-defunct, predatory, for-profit Corinthian. The Department has appealed the court’s decision.
