Disappointed Legal Job Seeker's Claim Against Law School Allowed to Proceed

This is the first case of it's kind that I am aware of that has been allowed to proceed. It's hard to tell how it will ultimately be decided. While we can all feel bad for law school graduates who worked hard and spent money on tuition, it's been abundantly obvious, that since 2008, the state of the legal job market is horrible and even graduates of the top-tier law schools are either unable to get good law jobs (or any at all). Whether this school's inflation of its job placement numbers are deceptive or mere puffery, most students of low-ranked law schools should know -- going in -- that their law degree is unlikely to provide entre to a good legal job.  Check out the story, as reported by the NY Times, at CNBC's website by cliking the below link:
