SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Three Sioux Falls residents are among five plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against the for-profit colleges Globe University and the Minnesota School of Business.
The complaint was filed last week in Minnesota state court. It accuses both schools of consumer fraud, unlawful and deceptive trade practices, and false advertising.
Sioux Falls residents Sarah Beck, Melissa Beck and Reginald Holmes are plaintiffs in the suit.
The complaint says Globe deliberately misrepresented the potential value of a degree and credits from the school.
A spokeswoman for Globe says the university is saddened by the lawsuit and is committed to defending the reputations of the current students, faculty and staff.
Globe and Minnesota School of Business are owned by the same organization based in Woodbury, Minn.
