Some People Will Sue For Anything
This lady needs to get a life:

NEW YORK - A New York City woman who says she can't find a job is suing the college where she earned a bachelor's degree.

Trina Thompson filed a lawsuit last week against Monroe College in Bronx Supreme Court. The 27-year-old is seeking the $70,000 she spent on tuition.

Thompson says she's been unable to find gainful employment since she received her information technology degree in April.

She says the Bronx school's Office of Career Advancement hasn't provided her with the leads and career advice it promises.

Monroe College spokesman Gary Axelbank says Thompson's lawsuit is completely without merit.

The college insists it helps its graduates find jobs.
 Quoting: MSNBC


First of all, this school didn't guarantee they'd find her a job. They'll give her advice on interviewing techniques and how to set up her resume. But that's about it...it's up to the student to find employers that are hiring. And whether she finds a job or not, that doesn't (in my opinion) entitle her to get her $70,000 tuition back. She still has the education and the degree. If she isn't finding a job, it might be that she lacks the experience employers are looking for. Or, maybe she isn't presenting herself well enough. Neither of which is the fault of the school.
A voice of reason in a world of woo-woos.

What is worse is when the person(s) sueing make up lies and or try to use the legal system to STEAL from others.

I know of one couple who are sue happy - they were involved in many different lawsuits (including malpractice) over the past 10 years. This is how they try to earn money.

OP - what I never understand in these ridiculous lawsuit stories is HOW these people find an attorney who will actually file.

Win or lose, the lawyer still gets paid? That would be my motivation.

Yeah, for an attorney who doesn't give a damn about his reputation or court win/lose record. I guess there are plenty of those out there.
