(Cleveland) - A Case Western Reserve University Student has filed suit against the school, saying he's owed a refund for last semester, when CWRU went to virtual learning.
In his suit, Daniel Lozada says he was charged $26,000 by CWRU for tuition and fees, but that the virtual learning lacked the educational benefits for which he had paid. The suit says that's why CWRU breached its contract with students, saying students "paid for tution for a first-rate education and an on-campus in-person experience."
The suit, filed Tuesday in Federal Court in Cleveland, seeks a class-action status, meaning if that's granted, the suit could be applied to more than 5,000 CWRU undergraduates.
CWRU said in a statement it's reviewing the suit, and has no comment at this time.
