In a well-publicized case, culinary school Le Cordon Bleu was subject to a class action suit involving 2,200 former students. The for-profit school allegedly engaged in false advertising of its prestigious training status. The students had claimed the school provided low-quality materials and training that was far from prestigious. The parent company, Career Education Corporation, had also reached a secret deal with lender Sallie Mae to overcharge students by 44%, so they could both make heavy profits.
The result of this class action litigation resulted in settlements to pay back 44% of its students’ tuition amounts. Without the establishment of a class action litigation, students would have had a difficult time proving their case.
