Jobless Woman Sues College for Tuition Refund

This past week a Bronx, New York woman filed a $72,000 lawsuit against Monroe college claiming that the office of career placement is not making sure that their “recruiting clients” are calling recent graduates are getting interviews for job placement. The complaint filed is online and it’s getting a great deal of press.

Trina Thompson is suing Monroe College for her tuition money, finding that her college degree is not resulting in an instant job. She is also seeking $2,000 to deal with the stress she has been going  through looking for a full time job on her own without the perceived hand holding of the career placement office. What is important to note is that she’s suing pro se, by herself, and is not being represented by an attorney looking to break new ground. It’s a rough economy and it seems that everyone is looking to find money somewhere.
