Lawsuit filed against Bradley University claims school failed students when classes moved online


PEORIA (WEEK) -- A lawsuit filed against Bradley University argues the school failed students after classes were moved to an online format amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The lawsuit was filed by a Jane Doe in U.S. District Court in Peoria in July.

The university moved to online classes in March.

The nursing students claims Bradley broke a contract with students, laid out in it's own catalog, by failing to provide 15 weeks of in person classroom instruction.

The class action suit says students were also damaged by the loss of use of on campus facilities, resources and services.

Despite Bradley sending students home and closing it's campus, it continued to charge the plaintiff and her classmates full-price tuition, the lawsuit argues.

The suit seeks for students to receive a refund on the portion of spring semester tuition, incurred after the university switched from an in person to online format and other damages.
