Florida Coastal Removes Lawsuit To Federal Court

Florida Coastal, the defendant in one the fifteen lawsuits claiming that law schools provided fraudulent employment data, has removed its case to Federal court.  Manuel Rodriguez, one of the plaintiff attorneys, plans to contest the move, arguing that "once you federalize the case, you have distant courts deciding local issues."  The case was assigned to Judge Marcia Cooke in Miami.
