LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A state district court judge has ruled that a lawsuit filed by eight former Dona Ana Community College students against the school will become a class-action proceeding.

Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://bit.ly/1Qtcmdo) that the initial lawsuit was filed after the students claimed they suffered turmoil and financial loss after the community college’s nursing school lost its national accreditation in 2012. Students are saying that loss was a breach of contract.

According to court documents, 100 students were enrolled at that time and will now be included in the case.

Some students remained at the school after it lost accreditation, while the majority chose to transfer to New Mexico State University’s nursing program.

An attorney for the students says any of the students can choose to opt out of the lawsuit.
