CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — A former state Senate candidate has filed a $21 million lawsuit against California for shutting down her one-room private university.
U-T San Diego says Xanthi Gionis sued Wednesday in federal court, alleging breach of contract and state code violations.
Gionis founded Aristotle University in Carlsbad. Some students said class met once a week and consisted mainly of videos. The for-profit school was ordered to close in January.
The lawsuit names state officials, a former nursing instructor at the university and Sen. Mark Wyland, a Carlsbad Republican who'd reportedly called the school a "diploma mill."
Wyland says the state Department of Consumer Affairs found the school was taking advantage of students but Gionis says she was the victim of a smear campaign that derailed her Senate run.
