CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A second round of mediation is scheduled stemming from the loss of accreditation of the nursing program at Mountain State University.

The Charleston Daily Mail (https://bit.ly/1ez8YJl) reports that the mediation is scheduled for March 26-28.

The mediation stems from lawsuits filed by former Mountain State students following the nursing program’s loss of accreditation. The university later lost school-wide accreditation and closed. The University of Charleston took over the school.

Hundreds of cases were transferred to West Virginia’s mass litigation panel. The first round of mediation was last August.

Lawsuits still are joining the mass litigation panel. Among the claims are fraud and breach of contract.
