Stanford University students file class action lawsuit in college admissions scandal

As several students nationwide remain outraged over the college admissions bribery scam, two Stanford University students take action — class action that is.

On Wednesday, Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods filed a federal lawsuit seeking class action status against dozens of universities named in the scandal.

The class action suit argues all individuals who applied to the named schools between 2012 and 2018, and were rejected, deserve restitution because their spots were given to less deserving candidates. It argues that applicants who played by the rules were victimized when these wealthy parents paid bribes enabling unqualified students to get into highly selective universities.
