$500 billion lawsuit claims Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin prevented student from getting into colleges

A woman is suing Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and others involved in an admissions scam for $500 billion, claiming that the two prevented her son’s admission into colleges.

Jennifer Kay Toy, a teacher from Oakland, Calif., said her son Joshua did not get into many of the schools implicated in a wide ranging college admissions scandal involving the actresses.

“Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” Toy said in the fraud class action suit filed in a San Francisco court.

{mosads}”Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason.”

“I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, 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.”

Huffman and Loughlin were among the roughly 30 parents charged Tuesday in what officials have called the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”

Those involved in the scam allegedly sought to get students admitted to colleges and universities by forging athletic records, bribing coaches and cheating on college entrance exams.

Toy’s is not the first lawsuit following the reveal of the scam.

Two Stanford University students filed a lawsuit against eight elite universities arguing they were not given an equal admission opportunity and that their degrees are less valuable because of the scandal.
