Dep’t of Education ordered to cancel student loans of all former Corinthian Colleges students in MA

"A federal judge has ordered the Department of Education to cancel the student loans of all 7,200 former Corinthian Colleges students in Massachusetts. This is the first time a federal court has ordered a borrower defense discharge of federal student loans.

"The victory in Vara v. DeVos comes nearly two years after the Department of Education was ordered to stop collecting on the borrowers’ loans because they were covered by a borrower defense application that was filed by the Massachusetts Attorney General. The lawsuit demanded that the Department grant the Attorney General’s borrower defense application and cancel the students’ fraudulent loans."
