Widener Law School Puffery Suit Survives Motion To Dismiss - Harnish v. Widener University School of Law, 12-cv-00608

Per The New Jersey Law Journal:

"Widener University School of Law graduates unable to find jobs in their profession can go forward with a suit charging they were misled about the school's placement success rate.

"Denying a motion to dismiss on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge William Walls in Newark found plausible the students' claims that the school — in boasting that more than 90 percent of graduates found jobs within nine months — blurred the line between legal and nonlegal employment.

"That would mean a law firm associate and a coffee bar attendant each count as one tick.

"'Why should a reasonable student looking to go to law school consider that data to include non law-related and part-time employment?' Walls wrote in Harnish v. Widener University School of Law, 12-cv-00608.

"'Should that student think that going to Widener Law School would open employment as a public school teacher, full or part time, or an administrative assistant, or a sales clerk, or a medical assistant?'"

Plaintiffs are seeking damages of $75 million.
