Kentucky Attorney General Sues a Third For-Profit College

In his third lawsuit against for-profit colleges, the attorney general of Kentucky, Jack Conway, announced on Tuesday that his office had filed a consumer-protection lawsuit against the National College of Kentucky Inc., a system with several hundred students on each of six campuses. Mr. Conway’s complaint says the for-profit college allegedly misrepresented its job-placement numbers, asserting the data National College posted on its Web site were “significantly higher” than data it reported to its accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges. In January, National College sued the attorney general. Mr. Conway says that the college attempted to block his investigation but that a circuit judge later ruled in his favor.
