UD Covid Related Lawsuit Results In Payout For Students
A lot of wild things have come out of the Covid-19 pandemic. But we did not have the UD Covid related lawsuit on our 202 bingo cards.
This whole time that we went through a quarantine, I never thought about how it affected my level of success.
That being said, I don’t envy any of the students that were forced to participate in digital or virtual learning. I always did better when I could be in person and learn hands on.
Could you imagine paying a hefty tuition and then having your school campus shut down?
Now, to no fault of their own, the University of Delaware was closed for the spring semester of 2020 due to the pandemic.
This halted in-person classes for the student body.
The University of Delaware has agreed to pay $6.3 million to settle a lawsuit over the campus shutdown, according to WDEL.
According to court papers that were filed this month, some 21,000 current and former students could receive cash reimbursements.
Apparently, more than 17,000 undergraduates were enrolled at the University of Delaware in spring 2020.
Ultimately, the university collected more than $160 million in tuition that semester.
The five students who were named plaintiffs in the UD covid related lawsuit are entitled to payments of $5,000 each as class representatives.
