Woman sues Mountain State University for accreditation issues
WINFIELD -- A woman is suing Mountain State University after she claims the university failed to inform her about losing its full accreditation status.
In 2008, Amy C. Pack was solicited by the defendant for the purpose of persuading her to enroll, pay for and participate in its LPN-BSN program, according to a complaint filed Feb. 22 in Putnam Circuit Court.
Pack claims when the defendant was notified that it was losing its full accreditation status, it failed to inform her that the LPN-BSN program did not have full accreditation status.
The defendant failed to inform Pack of the contents or affect of both the July 2008 and July 2010 visits and letters by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission,and encouraged her to continue paying for and participating in the program, according to the suit.
Pack claims the defendant also failed to inform her of the pending investigation by the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses in a timely manner.
The defendant breached its contract with Pack and its actions were deceptive, according to the suit.
Pack is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Thomas H. Peyton.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Phillip Stowers.
