TWO CLASS-ACTION LAWSUITS HAVE BEEN FILED AGAINST WARTBURG COLLEGE AND MOUNT MERCY UNIVERSITY OVER THE COST OF TUITION DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.

SYDNEY WARNER FILED THE SUIT IN BREMER COUNTY DISTRICT COURT AGAINST WARTBURG, SAYING THE VALUE OF THE REMOTE LEARNING PROVIDED DURING THE PANDEMIC WAS LESS THAN THE VALUE OF THE ON-CAMPUS EXPERIENCE PROMISED BY THE COLLEGE.

THE SAME LAW FIRM IS HANDLING A SIMILAR LAWSUIT IN LINN COUNTY DISTRICT COURT AGAINST MOUNT MERCY.

IF THE SUITS ARE SUCCESSFUL, OTHER STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE COLLEGES COULD GET SOME OF THEIR TUITION MONEY REFUNDED.
