Washington, D.C., June 23, 2015—Following today's ruling in APSCU v. Duncan, APSCU's General Counsel Sally Stroup released the following statement:
"We are disappointed by today's decision from the District Court for the
District of Columbia. We are closely reviewing the opinion and
considering our options. This case presents very serious legal issues,
of great significance not only to APSCU's members, but also to students.
"Indeed, as numerous
commentators have observed, the primary impact of the regulation will be
to deprive hundreds of thousands of students of access to higher
education. That is inconsistent with the congressional plan under the
Higher Education Act, unlawful, and bad policy."
