Jefferson County , West Virginia
A federal lawsuit filed by more than a dozen Mountain State University nursing students is headed back to state court.
The case was sent to Jefferson County Circuit Court earlier this month after the students amended the lawsuit.
The students sued after the school closed its doors because it lost accreditation. They claim school officials orchestrated a scheme to increase enrollment so the school could bring in more federal student loan and grant money.
The claim will join others that were ordered into a mass litigation panel. The cases are scheduled for mediation later this month.
