Heritage College v. Obama

Have you ever been involved in a Heritage College lawsuit? If so, then you probably understand the pain and suffering that come with being defrauded by a college that is supposed to stand for your education and a quality career. But if you or someone you know has been the victim of such a defrauding of funds, then you may have a point. And if this is one of the unfortunate results of a business venture gone bad, then it is a good thing that someone finally did something about it.

It may be hard to believe, but one in five American Universities is using such unscrupulous tactics.

In some cases, they defraud their students by stealing money and then telling them that they are not entitled to the monies that were stolen. This happens all the time at Universities all over the United States. One way that they do this is through the “guaranteed acceptance” process. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has done some investigations on these institutions and has slapped charges on four of them.

These institutions are Penn State, Heritage College, Southern New Hampshire University, and the University of Alabama. At the Southern New Hampshire University, there was a case where a woman who was a graduate student tried to sue the school for $1.75 million because she was denied medical treatment while in the hospital after being found unconscious in a trash can. She later died at the hospital. Her husband was given the settlement in one lump sum and the school settled the case with him for a total of around one hundred and eight thousand dollars. A settlement like that could come from the “guaranteed acceptance” practice, but the institutions that use this practice will not be sanctioned by the FTC.

At Penn State, there was an investigation where former Penn State trustee Robert Graham was fired for accepting gifts in exchange for faculty memberships and student loans.

There were investigations at other institutions of higher learning, but none have yet been launched as of now. One of the reasons why the institutions of higher learning cannot be held accountable for their actions is that the government does not have any jurisdiction over colleges and universities. The lack of jurisdiction over the college allows them to defraud the United States for the compensation of their injured parties. This makes these institutions immune from any form of governmental regulation.

The Heritage lawsuit is still pending. Heritage has until the trial to produce evidence that they have a solid case. They would need this evidence to prove that they were not guilty of any wrongdoing, but this evidence would take years to produce. Considering that these schools receive approximately twenty percent of their revenues through tuition, it would be impossible for them to produce all of the evidence needed.

Another reason that the settlement may not go through is that Heritage would have to admit guilt for the settlement to go through.

If the plaintiff won the lawsuit, Heritage would have to admit that they withheld information from the court to get more money from the government. The judge may also reduce the number of damages to be awarded, which would again tie up resources for the Heritage College. Another negative aspect is that once the settlement has been reached, the plaintiff’s loans are immediately terminated. Heritage College has negotiated a deferred payment plan with the Department of Education, which could potentially save the plaintiff thousands of dollars.
