Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Robert Cooper was quoted in an article providing an update on the settlement obligations imposed on Daymar College in the consumer protection lawsuit brought against the college by the Kentucky Attorney General’s office. The settlement included a court-approved consent decree governing Daymar’s future operations, as well as debt relief and cash payments. Robert was assigned by the court to serve as compliance monitor for the next two years to ensure the terms of the decree are upheld. Speaking about his role as monitor, Robert stated, “‘[o]bviously, our goal is two-fold, which is to make sure students are being fully informed and understand the obligations they are undertaking’ … The additional goal is to make sure students ‘are getting the educational benefit (they are expecting) when they were enrolled.'”
