ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general has filed a lawsuit against an Indiana-based seller of online nursing studies, alleging it deceptively induced up to 2,000 New Yorkers to sign up in hopes of obtaining an associate’s degree in nursing.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says his office has obtained a temporary restraining order in state court requiring The College Network to clearly disclose on all contract documents that it’s not affiliated with Excelsior College and isn’t a degree-granting program.

The suit alleges students were subject to high-pressure sales pitches and paid thousands of dollars for ineffective study guides that did not prepare them for the required exams for course credit and failed to provide required cancellation notices and refunds.

A call to The College Network’s lawyer was not immediately returned.
