Lawsuit Against John Marshall Law School Dismissed

A lawsuit filed against John Marshall Law School was thrown out of court by a judge from Cook County that claimed the school, in Chicago, falsely advertised employment numbers associated with its graduates, according to the Chicago Tribune.

According to the law school, Judge Mary Mikva dismissed the lawsuit ‘with prejudice,’ which means that claims cannot appear in court again about the school. The lawsuit was filed in February by three graduates of the school after they suffered from not being able to find a job.

Three recent graduates of the law school brought the case in February after having trouble finding a job. In the lawsuit, the former students claimed that the school painted a rosy picture of the job market in order to get more people to apply to the law school.

“The judge’s ruling vindicates John Marshall’s position that our reporting of post-graduate employment statistics did not violate the rights of any of our students,” John Corkery, dean of the school, said in a statement.

In a similar case, a ruling was issued by Cook County Circuit Judge Neil Cohen in September that dismissed a lawsuit filed against DePaul University College of Law. Cohen said that just because a student paid for tuition it does not guarantee that they will find a job upon graduation.
