•Defeated class certification in a consumer fraud case against a national postsecondary education provider. Case was pending in Madison County, Ill., and involved claims under the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act and the Private Business and Vocational Schools Act by failing to provide accurate information to prospective students over a seven-year period.
