Valerian Law P.C.’s client, Ms. Cacoya Hall, has resolved her potential claims arising under California law against Flockjay and New Epona, Inc., d/b/a Blair. Ms. Hall, a former Flockjay student, claimed that Flockjay entered into deferred tuition agreements (DTAs) on Blair’s platform without approval to operate from the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education, and that the related marketing, DTAs, and educational programming were unlawful in other respects. Flockjay and Blair expressly deny those allegations as well as any liability in connection with Ms. Hall’s claims. Flockjay has agreed to cancel all remaining DTA obligations entered into with California resident obligors and Blair has agreed that it will not engage in any DTA-related operations for two years. Ms. Hall is represented by attorneys Dominic Valerian and Xinying Valerian.
