CHARLESTON — A student has filed a class action lawsuit against a career center and fire commission, alleging constructive fraud and unjust enrichment.
Korey Blayke Cyfers, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Collins Career Center, West Virginia Fire Commission, Office of the State Fire Marshall, et al, alleging they ruined his chances to become a journeyman electrician.
According to the complaint, Cyfers has been harmed, has incurred debt, paid thousands of dollars and spent years of his life in taking an electrical journeymen program, for which he is not qualified.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants denied him the chance to sit for the test to become an journeyman electrician and wrongfully enrolled him. The suit says the defendants took thousands of dollars from Cyfers and other class members when the defendants knew or should have known that the program was not accredited.
Cyfers seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other just and appropriate relief. He is represented by attorneys Adrian Hoosier of Lord Hoosier PLLC in Charleston, and by Anthony J. Majestro of Powell & Majestro PLLC in Charleston.
