    Lawsuit

    In August 2011, a group of former NYLS students filed a $225 million lawsuit accusing the school of inflating their graduates' employment statistics. The plaintiffs alleged NYLS violated General Business Law ? 349 and committed fraud and negligent misrepresentation by publishing misleading employment and salary data in student recruitment literature. In March 2012, New York State Supreme Court Justice Melvin L. Schweitzer dismissed the case. While he conceded the school did not use the most transparent data in their recruitment materials, he wrote: "In this court's view, the issues posed by this case exemplify the adage that not every ailment afflicting society may be redressed by a lawsuit."
