11:57 EDTDVDeVry: Judge finds class action filed against company as 'strike suit'
DeVry Education Group is pleased with the decision issued May 8 by Judge John F. Grady of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Judge Grady found that a securities fraud class action filed against DeVry Group and certain senior executives four years ago was a “strike suit,” or a suit filed without any legitimate basis for the purpose of obtaining a private settlement. The Court also held that DeVry Group presumptively is entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses for the entire action. “We are pleased with the Court’s decision. It confirms what we have known for four years – that this was a frivolous suit,” said Greg Davis, general counsel at DeVry Education Group.

DeVry disclosed in a regulatory filing that on July 15 DeVry Group received a letter from the Office of the Attorney General of the State of New York requesting cooperation with the NYOAG’s inquiry into whether recent television advertisements and website marketing regarding DeVry University may have violated federal and state laws prohibiting false advertising and deceptive practices. The letter requests relevant information from January 1, 2011, to the present to enable NYOAG to make a determination of what action, if any, is warranted.
