The legal hits keep coming for Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman. Disgruntled parents are slapping the actresses for their involvement in the college admissions scam. Spiel News..com can reveal exclusive details on the latest legal troubles for the Fuller House and Desperate Housewives stars.
In the complaint obtained from Superior Court of San Francisco, mother Jennifer Kay Toy and Joshua Toy, individually and on behalf of all others (estimated at over 1,000,000), are suing the actresses and all others involved in the cheating scam.
“I was a teacher with the Oakland Unified School District and then a teacher with Pacifica Academy,” the Plaintiff explained in the complaint filed on March 13, 2019. “I always taught my students that study and hard work was the best way to get into a good college. I always taught my students to be honest and forthright and that cheating was wrong.”
She claimed she raised her son Joshua alone since he was two-and-a-half-years old, making sacrifices so he would get into a good college.
She praised her son for graduating with a 4.2 grade point average. She claimed her son was rejected from some of the colleges involved in the scandal.
“Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all the other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason,” Toy wrote. “I’m now aware of the massive cheating scandal wherein wealthy people conspired with people in positions of power and authority at colleges in order to allow their children to gain access to the very colleges that Joshua was rejected from.”
Toy called the actions “heinous” and “despicable.”
“I’m now 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,” the complaint claimed. “Plaintiffs simply wanted a fair chance for themselves or their children to go to a good college and that opportunity for a fair chance was stolen by the actions of Defendants.”
The Plaintiff alleged, “Defendants conspired with others known and unknown to bribe college entrance exam administrators to facilitate cheating on college entrance exams, to bribe varsity coaches and administrators at elite universities to designate certain applicants as recruited athletes or as favored candidates, thereby facilitating the applicants’ admission to those universities and to use the façade of a charitable organization to conceal the nature and source of the bribe payments.”
The Plaintiffs are asking for no less than $500,000,000,000.
As Radar has reported, Loughlin, 54, and Huffman, 56, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
The Fuller House star and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli were charged after allegedly agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters accepted as recruited crew coxswains, even though they did not participate in crew.
Loughlin has been dropped from Fuller House and Hallmark.
ET was the first to report on the lawsuit.
