Attorney General’s Office Wins Appeal Against For-Profit College

On Thursday, October 19, Attorney General Andy Beshear announced his office had won the final appeal in a case requiring American National University to pay $147,000 in civil monetary sanctions. On October 10, the United States Supreme Court denied a petition filed by the for-profit college, formerly known as National College of Kentucky, to overturn a 2016 Kentucky Court of Appeal’s opinion that affirmed a 2014 ruling by the Franklin Circuit Court, sanctioning the college $147,000 for violating the Kentucky Consumer Protection Act. The award stems from the college’s refusal to respond to a subpoena issued by the Attorney General’s Office in 2010 and subsequent violation of court orders.
