Fourteen more current and former students who were denied admissions into elite universities tied to the nation’s college admissions scandal are now suing the colleges and the mastermind of the scheme, seeking to get back their application fees.
The class-action complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Friday, builds on a similar class-action lawsuit brought by two students shortly after the Justice Department in March indicted 50 individuals, including parents and college coaches, in the sweeping “Varsity Blues” scandal.
The new suit is filed on behalf of all students who were rejected after paying an application fee between 2012 and 2018 to one of eight universities tied to the cheating and bribery scandal.
