New York, NY – On February 21st, Judge Victor Marrero approved Plaintiff’s motion requesting class certification in their case against NYU. The case represents previous students of NYU’s Tisch Asia program who were unsatisfied with the quality of their education. When they signed up to participate in the school’s graduate program, they were told that the Singapore program was up to par with the program in New York. They soon learned that Tisch Asia’s classrooms, instructors, and equipment fell well below the standards that NYU had promised. Furthermore, NYU concealed the financial fragility of the program from the students.
Judge Victor Marrero’s order (linked here) granted class certification for the Plaintiffs, setting the parameters of the class as “all student who attended New York University Tisch School of the Arts, Asia,” and appointing Giskan Solotaroff & Anderson LLP and Schwartz, Ponterio & Leveonson, PLLC as counsel.
