Former Students Sue Owners of Beauty College
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Fifteen former students of Dahl's College of Beauty in Great Falls have filed a federal lawsuit alleging they were expelled after complaining that the school failed to provide them with qualified instructors and that the school refused to refund tuition and fees of nearly $10,000 each.
The lawsuit, filed last week, alleges Dahl's and its owners enrolled students "in a purported educational program without qualified instructors ... to the point where they could retain students' financial aid and tuition payments without having to make a refund," and then expelled them without a valid reason.
Dahl's attorney, Bob Murdo of Helena, released a statement Tuesday saying "the college claims that a large amount of the allegations contained in the complaint ... are not accurate or are mischaracterizations of the facts."
