This is a short update for all following our consumer fraud class action against Career Education Corporation and its Portland culinary school, Western Culinary Institute/Le Cordon Bleu Portland.
We’ve been waiting for a ruling from Judge Baldwin on Career Education Corp’s motion to compel arbitration and to dismiss this long-running class action. Judge Baldwin denied the motion, which is another battle won for consumers and members of the class. I am pleased with the ruling, but there is still far to go.
We’re moving now to complete discovery on the merits of the class’s claims. More news as it happens.
