$118 million dollars are at stake in battle over whether Lawline Defrauded Faculty
Has Lawline FurtherEd abandoned the law and crossed the line? $118 million dollars are at stake in battle over whether Lawline engaged in fraud, breach of contract, misappropriation of image and name, and gross misrepresentation of material facts concerning the intellectual property rights of attorneys who provided course content for the online legal community.
CEO David Schnurman once said FurtherEd is “Going After Professionals Who Have Money And A BIG Needs" and his business ia an alleged ‘leading provider of online continuing legal education.’ However, has anyone investigated how Lawline company has provided an alleged 2 million courses for online credits in all 50 states without compensating any of its faculty members for use of their image, name, likeness, and rights to their intellectual property?
Did Michele Richman and David Schnurman knowingly and intentionally remove attorney faculty websites or authorize removeal to tamper with evidence? Did they knowingly and intentionally hide faculty videos that were purportedly removed under an "unlisted" YouTube account for paid subscribers?
