Brooklyn, NY asked in Consumer Law and Education Law for New Jersey

Q: Can i Sue school for fraud or get included on the class action lawsuit against Le Cordon Bleu Culinary school.

Attended there between 2006-2008, before attending they made promises and gave false information to students about the validity of their degrees are seen in the hospitality industry. Told people me they would line me up with an externship on East coast, and help find jobs here also, which they didn't do. Now after fraduating, i couldn't find a job in the field took me 4 years after graduating, with a useless piece of paper from them, and 70 grand in loans. What can I do about getting included in the class action lawsuit that is against them or suing them myself. Le Cordon Bleu I recently found out is closing, I want justice for the fraudulent ways they conducted business.

A: Chances are if they are closing, they MAY also file for Bankruptcy, in which case you would get nothing. You should contact the State Attorney General where they are based and call the NJ AG as well. Sorry I can't give you any better information. Good luck.
