Brown University Student Represented by Hagens Berman and McIntyre Tate Files Class Action Lawsuit Over COVID-19


The COVID-19 pandemic has affected most parts of our daily life, and school is no exception. Across the US and world at large, schools are shutting down and sending students home—even universities.

As students move back home and abandon dorm rooms, cafeterias, and in some cases, even their classes, many are left with a simple question: "do I still have to pay for all of this?" Unfortunately, many institutions have handled this important question poorly and have failed to issue fair refunds, or no refunds at all.

Recently, a Brown University student represented by the law firms Hagens Berman and McIntyre Tate filed a class action lawsuit against the university, claiming the higher education institution improperly charged students for expenses such as tuition, room, and board that they could no longer use or access because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
