DETROIT (Legal Newsline) – Several individuals allege a Michigan school fraudulently induced them to sign forms and agreements to enroll in its electrical technician program.
David Ratcliffe, Clifton Banford II, et al. filed a complaint on Feb. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division against Dorsey School of Business Inc., doing business as Dorsey Schools, alleging fraud and misrepresentation and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendant "provided false and misleading information regarding the employment opportunities available to the plaintiffs upon completion of the electrical technician educational program and defendant's employment placement rates at positions involving residential, commercial and/or industrial electrical services."
The plaintiffs allege that after completion of the defendant's program, they were unable to get their electrical apprentice certificate because the defendant's program was not approved or accredited.
The plaintiffs hold Dorsey School of Business Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to disclose that its electrical technician educational program was not properly accredited.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $75,000 exclusive of attorneys' fees, costs and interest. They are represented by Peter A. Angelas and John T. Alexander of Law Offices of Alexander & Angelas PC in Bingham Farms, Michigan.
