Two class action lawsuits have already been filed in response to Operation Varsity Blues, the nationwide investigation of cheating on college admissions. "I'm now outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was ok to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children's way into a good college".
On Tuesday, a number of people, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged with bribing a man by the name of William Singer to get their kids into college. The court filing does not specify the colleges where her son applied or when he submitted his applications.
Singer previously pleaded guilty to running the scheme that relied upon a number of illegal activities - including bribing athletic coaches and hiring individuals to take tests for students - to get the children of TV star Felicity Huffman, former Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge, newly departed Hercules Capital CEO Manuel Henriquez and others into top-ranked USA universities.
This isn't the first lawsuit to be filed in connection with the criminal probe.
