Arlington, VA – Today, Judge William Alsup in the Northern District of California approved the borrower defense class settlement in Sweet v. Cardona.
“The four intervenor schools made a compelling case that the Sweet settlement represents an unlawful overreach by the Department of Education and unfairly maligns over 150 institutions without any opportunity to respond. We are disappointed that Judge Alsup overlooked these defects and approved the settlement,” said CECU’s President and CEO, Dr. Jason Altmire. “We expect that the Ninth Circuit on appeal will recognize these fatal flaws and send the parties back to the negotiating table."
