Students Seek Their Own Committee to Represent an Estimated $25 Billion of Claims in Corinthian Colleges Bankruptcy

Corinthian students seek special committee through Department of Justice to provide opportunity for the interests of students to be heard


LOS ANGELES, May 11, 2015—Attorneys representing an ad-hoc student group and seeking to represent the interests of an estimated 500,000 students of the recently-collapsed Corinthian Colleges Inc., have formally requested that a special committee be formed to provide meaningful participation by students. The aggregate claims may exceed $25 billion in the bankruptcy cases of Corinthian and its subsidiaries. Public Counsel Law Center, Robins Kaplan LLP, and Strumwasser & Woocher LLP said that the legal action is intended to ensure that student voices are heard in a case that will significantly affect their finances and their futures.

“By taking this urgent action, the students—the real victims in this unnecessary and heartbreaking scandal—will have their specific interests represented,” said Mark Rosenbaum, Director of Public Counsel Opportunity Under Law. “These students were offered one of the most precious gifts of a democracy—the promise to access an education. Instead, they became victims of an irresponsible and negligent corporate culture. These students’ only failure was that they trusted the false promises made to them, and believed too much in our national credo that the only sure way to opportunity is through schoolhouse doors.”

The students—those most affected by the fraudulent business practices that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau called a “predatory lending scheme,” and which led to Corinthian Colleges’ demise—seek to represent their own interests in the bankruptcy case by establishing a special committee of creditors for students only.

“I want more than anything to see the door opened for all students who were harmed by these schools to finally have their voices recognized,” said Aeyla Admire, a former student at Corinthian Colleges subsidiary, Everest College, who was misled by Everest about her program’s accreditation and how her education would be financed. “We are the ones who are stuck paying back these loans we didn’t authorize, and who have had our credit ratings decimated by this debt.”

“The claims of current and former Corinthian students are unique and different from the trade creditors of Corinthian,” saidScott Gautier of Robins Kaplan LLP, bankruptcy counsel for the ad-hoc student group. “We hope that the U.S. Trustee will see the merit in establishing a separate creditors’ committee composed of and run by student representatives. To date, the students have not had an effective forum in which to collectively address their concerns and we have asked the U.S. Trustee’s office to establish the committee and provide them meaningful representation in the bankruptcy forum. Considering that hundreds of thousands of students have attended these schools, with program costs from $20,000 to $100,000, we estimate that the students’ damage claims could exceed $25 billion.”

“This committee will help students establish their right to redress for both the debts incurred, and the consequential damages that have been visited upon the student population. Moreover, the ability to work through an official committee will give the students the ability to focus efforts on redress, which will likely come, in part, through student loan forgiveness and ongoing programs to assist students with education and job placement. We believe that collective treatment is not only proper, but the most efficient and effective way for the bankruptcy estates to address these claims,” Gautier added.

Following are a few of the many examples of Corinthian’s fraudulent and misleading actions:

Tiffany Contreras enrolled in Everest College’s paralegal program in April 2013 and was nine weeks from graduating when the school closed its doors on April 27, 2015. She currently owes over $47,000 in subsidized and unsubsidized federal loans, as well as a private Genesis loan. The week before the school closed, Tiffany was asked to pay a $500 “repack” fee, and was told by an employee of the financial aid office that the school had been “repackaging” students’ loans without their permission. Read Tiffany’s story.

Sarah Dieffenbacher is a mother of four and the first person in her family to attend college. She studied at Everest College from 2007-2010 to become a legal assistant and was shocked to learn from a potential employer that her program was not recognized, let alone ABA accredited as Everest had claimed. She was also shocked to discover that she owed $110,000 in loans that the school took out in her name without notifying her. Read Sarah’s story.

Tasha Courtright had the highest grade point average at Everest College’s Ontario campus, where she completed an associate’s degree in criminal justice and a bachelor’s degree in business management. Everest recruiters aggressively pursued her, assuring her she would be earning $45,000 per year after completing her degree and claiming a 91 percent job placement success rate, which turned out to be untrue. She informed the recruiters that she could not afford college, and they told her they “ran the numbers” and assured her that grants would cover the cost of her program. She now owes $41,000 in debt and has never been able to obtain documentation of her loans.Read Tasha’s story.

Aeyla Admire, who completed Everest College’s medical assistant training program in 2006-2007 with straight A’s, is the first person in her family to go to college. She had hoped access to higher education would help her gain the financial security she never had growing up as the child of a single mother working minimum-wage jobs. Instead, Everest failed to help her access the job placement resources they had promised, and misled her about her financial aid, taking out over $17,000 in public and private loans without her authorization.

DiversityInc Unveils the 2015 Top 50 Companies for Diversity

Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation Holds the Number One Spot for the Second Year in a Row

DiversityInc Top 50 Stock Index Significantly Outperforms the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and S&P 500


New York, NY (April 24, 2015) – Diversity and inclusion's keystone event in America took place at Cipriani Wall Street Thursday evening, as DiversityInc announced the 2015 Top 50 Companies for Diversity in front of more than 900 senior executives. Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation remained at the top of the rankings for their second year, while Kaiser Permanente jumped two spots to come in second. PricewaterhouseCoopers, EY, Sodexo, MasterCard Worldwide, AT&T, Prudential Financial, Johnson & Johnson, and Procter & Gamble rounded out the top 10. MassMutual Financial Group and Hilton Worldwide were both newcomers to the list this year.

“With more than 1000 companies participating, the competition for a spot on the DiversityInc Top 50 and Specialty Lists was up over 30% this year,” said DiversityInc Founder and CEO Luke Visconti. “Companies are recognizing the importance of diversity for corporate reputation - which directly effects millennial-generation recruiting and retention. And whether you’re talking about Silicon Valley, Ferguson, or Indiana, there’s no denying that stories about how far we still need to come regarding diversity have been dominating the headlines in 2015.”

DiversityInc Top 50 companies have significantly more diversity than average American corporations. Compared with EEOC statistics, Top 50 companies have 20% more Blacks, Latinos, and Asians in management, and 13% more women. In the Top 10 the contrast is even sharper, with 41% more Blacks, Latinos, and Asians, and 46% more women than US corporate average. This year, for the first time, the National Organization on Disability tracker was required for the Top 10 Disabilities list.

CNBC covered the DiversityInc Top 50 event and provided the stock market econometric evaluation. “The Top 50 list outperformed the market on a short and long-term basis - which has been the case over the past several years. This shows evidence of the link between excellence in diversity management and superior corporate governance,” said Visconti.

Any company with over one thousand U.S.-based employees is eligible to enter, and there is no cost to compete. Each company’s rank is based on objective analysis of 183 separate factors, based on data from a 300-question survey. The four equally weighted areas of measurement include Talent Pipeline, Equitable Talent Development, CEO/Leadership Commitment, and Supplier Diversity.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized by DiversityInc as the top ranked company for a second year in a row,” said Christi Shaw, President, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation and US Country Head, Novartis Corporation. “For us, Diversity & Inclusion are an important part of our culture and strategic business focus. Fostering an environment where authenticity and collaboration can flourish enables us to drive future breakthroughs and innovations that help patients live fuller, healthier lives.”

The announcement dinner included a keynote address from Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr., whose Rainbow PUSH Coalition has been calling on the tech industry to embrace more diversity as a business opportunity.

DiversityInc also released 13 lists for the following select specialty areas:

• 25 Noteworthy Companies

• Top 10 Companies for LGBT Employees (Wells Fargo, No. 1)

    Getting Hired in One-Minute, Wow! New App Simplifies Job Search, Recruiting, and Hiring


     Wow  App



    PITTSBURGH -- WOWHire!, an innovative job search and hiring app from Founder and CEO, Samuel Boyer, and Co-Founder Phil Laboon, is literally turning heads.

    WOWHire! is a new mobile platform that allows employers to swipe their way through one- minute video resumes, created and uploaded by job seekers and potential candidates.

    It’s quick and easy to get started. Candidates sign up, log in, and use their cell phone’s camera to create a 60-second video resume, allowing for a quick and effective connection with employers like never before.

    Employers can browse through the database of video resumes, in their search for candidates to fill entry-level positions. The one-minute videos offer powerful insights into the personality, presentation and communication skills of the candidate. It’s quick and easy to swipe through dozens of candidates in just as many minutes.

    Candidates can see how many companies have viewed their video resume and which companies liked them. Employers can use filters to quickly look through thousands of potential hires, narrowing down their search by education, industry experience, or academic institution. Once they find a potential candidate, they can quickly save them to their ‘favorites’ and then easily follow up with potential hires for further evaluation.

    Unlike with traditional resumes, one-minute video resumes allow companies to make a more personal connection with potential hires, enabling them to better assess someone’s fit within the company’s culture before investing the time for a face-to-face interview.

    The WOWHire! network is rapidly expanding with national as well as global companies in financial services, hospitality, and technology signing up.

    The app can be downloaded for free at www.WOWHire.com (Apple iOS or Android).

    Grassroots & National Advocates Launch Initiative Calling on President Obama to Embrace Fair Chance Hiring Reforms

    Over 100 Localities and States Pave the Way for Federal Action


    New York, NY—Worker advocates, faith-based organizers, and the formerly incarcerated joined together today to launch an initiative urging President Obama to take executive action to ensure that employment opportunities with federal agencies and contractors are open to qualified job-seekers with arrests or convictions in their past. “Fair chance” hiring policies that reduce unfair hiring barriers against people with records and help employers tap into undiscovered talent have been adopted in more than 100 cities, counties, and states, paving the way for federal action.

    The initiative is being jointly organized by All of Us or None, a membership organization of the formerly incarcerated; the PICO National Network, the nation’s largest faith-based organizing network with more than 1,000 religious congregations in 200 U.S. cities; and the National Employment Law Project, a research and advocacy group for low-wage and unemployed workers. The groups will partner on a series of activities and events over the coming months.

    In a report released today, “Advancing a Federal Fair Chance Hiring Agenda,” the National Employment Law Project (NELP) makes the case for federal action that builds on the momentum in the 13 states, the District of Columbia, and the 96 cities and counties that have adopted “ban the box” and other fair chance hiring measures.

    In support of the initiative, the three groups also released a sign-on letter for organizations around the country to urge President Obama to take immediate executive action. Early signers include the ACLU, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, actor/activist Danny Glover, Michael Hannigan, the president and co-founder of Give Something Back Office Supplies, JustLeadershipUSA, the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, and other notable individuals and organizations.

    Almost one in three adults in the United States has a criminal record that will show up on a routine criminal background check, which creates a serious barrier to employment for communities of color hardest hit by decades of over-criminalization, according to NELP’s report. Nearly one in four U.S. workers is employed either by a federal contractor, a subcontractor, or the federal government. With the labor market now recovering, the federal government should waste no time in ensuring that job applicants with past convictions can fairly compete for jobs.

    Dorsey Nunn, who has championed the rights of the formerly incarcerated as a founding member of All of Us or None, and serves as executive director of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, stated: “What we are asking for comes down to the simple proposition that formerly incarcerated citizens should be entitled to the same active participation in the government, including our taxpayer-funded jobs, that belongs to everyone else. We pay taxes, too. It’s part and parcel of the process of achieving the full restoration of our rights.”

    Pastor Michael McBride, who leads the PICO National Network’s Live Free campaign, which is committed to addressing gun violence and mass incarceration of young people of color, believes that the current state of America’s economic and justice systems contributes to racial discrimination that further erodes the moral character of our nation. “‘Ban the Box’ measures are a step forward in fixing a justice system that is inefficient and ineffective and that leaves us unwilling and unable to see the humanity and value of black and brown lives,” said McBride. “How can a child, a man, or a woman seek opportunity, act on their potential, or be optimistic about their future, if they are not also free and safe to strive for a better tomorrow?”

    “Nearly 50 years ago, Dr. King challenged our nation to recognize that ‘now our struggle is for genuine equality, which means economic equality,’” said Maurice Emsellem, director of NELP’s Access and Opportunity Program and co-author of the report. “Without opening up employment opportunities for the large numbers of Americans who have been unfairly locked out of the job market because of a conviction, the nation will never realize the promise of economic opportunity.”

    The NELP report comes on the heels of the State of the Union address in which President Obama talked about restoring the link between hard work and opportunity for every American. The report details a specific agenda for reform by the Administration, which includes an Executive Order extending model fair chance hiring to private employers that contract with the federal government and a Presidential Memorandum directing federal agencies to close major gaps in the hiring process that undermine the efforts of qualified workers with a record to access federal jobs.

    Elected officials across the political spectrum have embraced criminal justice reform and fair chance hiring measures specifically, mostly recently including ban-the-box legislation signed by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie that extends to private employers. In 2014, four states and 38 cities and counties (42 jurisdictions) enacted fair chance reforms—more than double the jurisdictions that did so in 2013.

    Today, over 100 million people live in an area where fair chance hiring is in effect. Six states now extend their fair chance hiring reforms to private sector employers, and a growing number of major corporations, including Walmart, Target, and Home Depot—three of top five retailers in the nation—have adopted such policies as well. New campaigns are underway in key states, such as Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Washington, and in major cities, including Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, Dallas, and Orlando.

    President’s Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force also endorsed fair chance hiring. The task force report recommended “implement[ing] reforms to promote successful reentry, including hiring practices, such as ‘Ban the Box,’ which give applicants a fair chance and allow employers the opportunity to judge individual job applicants on their merits as they reenter the workforce.”

    New Research Links Income Inequality to a Marriage Gap Between the Wealthy and Poor


    In advance of the December 11 publication date, the Russell Sage Foundation will host a press call with Johns Hopkins sociologist Andrew Cherlin to present new research on economic inequality, marriage, and family trends from Cherlin’s forthcoming book, Labor’s Love Lost (Russell Sage Foundation, 2014). A national expert on work and family issues, Cherlin will be joined by other experts in the field, including author and professor Stephanie Coontz, to discuss the implications of his research.

    In documenting two centuries of work and family trends, Labor’s Love Lost examines how:

    · The male-breadwinner family is a historical anomaly—not the American norm: Despite its outsized place in the American imagination, the idea of the middle class male-breadwinner family is an anomaly in American history.

    · Economic inequality and the marriage gap go hand-in-hand: Cherlin documents how the marriage gap between the well-to-do and working-class Americans expands during times of high income inequality, drawing new connections between the present day and the “Gilded Age” of the late nineteenth century.

    · American children experience the highest rates of family turnover in the developed world: Large numbers of American children today live with single parents or with parents in cohabitating unions of short duration and high breakup rates. As a result, American children experience parents, parents’ partners, and stepparents moving in and out of their households far more than in other developed countries.

    · High school-educated Americans raise children in patterns more similar to high-school dropouts than college graduates: The percentage of children who are aren’t living with two biological parents has increased sharply among the moderately-educated. It is now common for high-school-educated women to have at least one child outside of marriage.

    · African American employment and family trends are distinct from the marriage gap among whites: As African American men did not fully share in the wage gains of the post-war period, Cherlin traces how marriage rates among African Americans did not rise as high as whites during the 1950s and 1960s, and how they have fallen further in the most recent period.

    · New educational and labor market policies are needed to stabilize working-class families: Cherlin argues that the U.S. must improve the educational opportunities for working-class children, including placing greater emphasis on apprenticeships and internships as pathways to steady employment for high school graduates—rather than promoting college education for all. In addition, he argues that labor market interventions—such as subsidizing low wages through tax credits and raising the minimum wage—are needed to foster stability.
