Status of Lawsuits Against Colleges Regarding the Online Pivot Due to COVID-19

In 2020, following the massive emergency pivot to online teaching affecting colleges and universities across the U.S. due to COVID-19, a number of lawsuits were filed against institutions alleging (among other things) breach of contract and educational malpractice. Inside Higher Education reports today about the status of many of those lawsuits.

From Inside Higher Education: "While judges have dismissed many of those cases, finding them to be without merit or to fail to state a legitimate legal claim, dozens of other courts have given the plaintiffs preliminary victories by allowing the lawsuits to go to trial -- and at least two colleges have agreed to pay millions of dollars to settle lawsuits."
