Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and Bill McGlashan, co-founder of STX Entertainment and all the other people listed on the college bribery scheme might have to fork out some more money, this time to a mother of a student who did not get into college.
Jennifer Kay Toy has opened a $500 Million lawsuit in the middle of the college bribery scheme that has angered many parents.
In court documents obtained by ET Canada Toy says her son, Joshua, who had a 4.2 GPA, “applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in.”
Toy and her son believe that he would have had a fair chance “but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason.”
On March 12, the FBI made 33 indictments against parents, administrators and college coaches.
The lawsuit is currently against 46 people and Toy will add other names “as they are discovered.”
“I’m now aware of the massive cheating scandal wherein wealthy people conspired with people in positions of power and authority at colleges in order to allow their children to gain access to the very colleges that Joshua was rejected from,” Toy explained.
The former award-winning teacher went on to say that even if she was “wealthy” she would have “not engaged in the heinous and despicable actions of defendants.”
Adding, “I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was ok to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college.”
Two Stanford students, who were rejected from Yale and USC, are also trying to start a class action lawsuit against Rick Singer, the man behind organizing the scheme and the universities involved.
