Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Bloomberg: 20 More Law Schools to be Sued Over Placement Data:
The lawyer here basically did not read his own complaint. He says in this interview: we do not allege that the primary reason these people attended law school was because of these employment numbers; it was one of many factors. In the complaints, however, for every single plaintiff, he alleges that "had they been aware that the __ school's employment numbers included part time or temporary or non-legal employment, they would have not attended law school or paid less to attend."

I'm having trouble following the logic of your criticism. Because a person might have had a different primary reason for attending a law school, it doesn't mean that some other fact, had he or she known about it, wouldn't have been a good enough reason not to go to that school. The complaint theory, at least as you describe it,seems entirely consistent.
