An “outraged and hurt” mom has slapped a $500 billion lawsuit on Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman and the others accused in the college admissions scandal.
The two actors were named among a group who paid millions in bribes to to a William Singer-topped Key Worldwide Foundation fake non-profit and coaches at top schools like UCLA, USC, Yale Georgetown and Stanford, so their children could gain admission as recruited athletes – even if they weren’t actually athletes.
Jennifer Kay Toy, who identified herself as a teacher who previously taught in the Oakland Unified School District, filed the class-action suit in San Francisco County Superior Court on March 13, accusing the defendants of inflicting emotional distress, civil conspiracy and fraud, according to the suit obtained by Deadline.
Toy says her son “was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was ok to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college.”
Toy says that the “heinous” alleged actions of those accused have made her “outraged and hurt.” She adds that she and Joshua, who she says graduated with a 4.2 gpa, “believed that he’d had a fair chance” and that fair chance was “stolen.” She did not specify which colleges did not accept Joshua, but those named in the scandal include Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA, the University of Texas and Wake Forest.
Both Loughlin and Huffman were taken into custody and released after paying bond.
