DeVos Wants Boosted Contempt Bid Squashed

Law360 (January 23, 2020, 6:32 PM EST) -- The U.S. Department of Education has asked a California federal court not to jack up the $100,000 sanction it slapped Education Secretary Betsy DeVos with last year after her department violated a court order by billing thousands of students with loans tied to the disgraced and defunct Corinthian Colleges.
