When COVID precautions shut down colleges and universities, some misguided, greedy or dishonest educational administrators refused to refund fees for services that were not rendered.
Controversial Florida House Speaker-Designate PAUL RENNER (R-St. Johns and Flagler Counties) is a corporate lawyer with NELSON MULLINS.
RENNER is defending lawsuits by students denied refunds by Embry-Riddle University and Jacksonville University.
RENNER chairs the House Rules Committee.
Does RENNER plan to recuse himself if fee refund legislation and litigation are discussed?
The schools need to refund the fees, instead of engaging in pettifoggery and harassing civil litigation defense tactics.
Is "sovereign immunity" the last refuge of scoundrels in defense of breach of contract class action litigation?
You tell me.
