A California woman filed a $500 billion lawsuit against Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman over the college bribery scandal.
The woman, Jennifer Kay Toy, also filed a lawsuit against the dozens of other defendants named in “Operation Varsity Blues.” Toy is a former Oakland school teacher who said her son, Joshua, wasn’t admitted to several colleges where the scandal allegedly took place despite him having a 4.2 GPA.
According to the Los Angeles Times, “Joshua and I beleived [sic] that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason,” she wrote in the class-action lawsuit. “I’m now 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,” she wrote.
The court filing doesn’t specify what colleges to which her son applied or when he submitted his applications.
Toy’s lawsuit estimates that “due to the length and breadth of the cheating scam,” one million people were affected, the LA Times reported.
Kay Toy added in the lawsuit: “I’m not a wealthy person, but even if I were wealthy I would not have engaged in the heinous and despicable actions of defendants,” ABC7 reported.
Other than Loughlin, the “Full House” and “Fuller House” star, and Huffman, who appeared in “Desperate Housewives,” dozens of other people were named, including CEOs, business owners, a high-level lawyer, and a bestselling author.
Another Lawsuit The LA Times reported that two Stanford students filed a class-action lawsuit against eight colleges ensnared in the admissions scandal.
Stanford, USC, UCLA, the University of San Diego, the University of Texas at Austin, Wake Forest University, Yale University, and Georgetown University are named in the lawsuit. Those are the colleges named by federal officials.
Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods, who both go to Stanford, claimed that they were among the students cast aside in the admissions process.
