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.

07:23 EDTDVGovernment not looking to push other colleges out of business, says Wells Fargo
In the wake of Corinthian Colleges' (COCO) dissolution due to actions taken by the Department of Education, Wells Fargo thinks the government did not intend for this scenario to unfold. After speaking with unnamed "knowledgeable sources" about the issue, the firm does not expect the department to take similar actions in the future because doing so would create too much of a workload for the department, Wells believes. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Public Education (APEI), Apollo Education (APOL), Bridgepoint Education (BPI), Career Education (CECO), Corinthian Colleges (COCO), DeVry (DV), Grand Canyon (LOPE), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer (STRA).
