Court Dismisses Class Action Seeking Partial Refunds of College Tuitions Relative to COVID-19 Virtual Classes

In the case of Brezinski v. Widener University, No. 2:20-CV-04939-JMY (E.D. Pa. Jan. 28, 2022 Younge, J.), the court granted a Defendant University’s Motion to Dismiss a class action seeking a partial refund of university tuition due to the school’s switch to online instructions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The court dismissed this claim where it found that the course materials and syllabi were insufficient to create an expressed contract obligating the university to provide in-person instructions.

As such, the court granted the Defendant University’s Motion to Dismiss.
