Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy Class Action Settlement (Portland Location)
The class consists of all former students who enrolled at and attended Le Cordon Bleu Portland on or after March 5, 2006, up to and including March 1, 2010. The Settlement impacts only those class members who did not sign an agreement expressly waiving their right to bring a class action (the “Settlement Subclass”).
As part of the Settlement, Defendants agreed to pay to each member of the Settlement Subclass who fills out and returns a Claim Form by the deadline 44% of the total amount each Settlement Subclass Member paid to Le Cordon Bleu Portland. That total amount includes the amount paid for tuition, books, and fees, less any amounts received in grants or scholarships from Defendants and any amounts owed directly to Defendants. Defendants also agree that they will not seek to collect on amounts owed by members of the Settlement Subclass directly to Defendants.
