PORTLAND, ORE. (CN) – The Business Computer Training Institute closed all of its schools in Oregon and Washington without providing the placement services it promised to more than 100 graduates, a class action claims in Multnomah County Court.
Named plaintiff Eula Gordon says she spent $12,000 for the program at BCTI’s Beaverton campus. She attended from June 2004 until she graduated in January 2005. She claims she was “damaged in the sum of $4,800, which is 40 percent of her costs to attend BCTI,” without elucidating why she claims only the 40 percent.
BCTI closed all its schools in Oregon and Washington in January 2005, the complaint states. Also sued is the parent corporation, BCTI Community Services, LP.
Plaintiffs are represented by Charles Robinowitz.
