The class-action lawsuit against West Publishing Company's Bar/Bri Bar Review and The Washington Post Company's Kaplan, Inc., has been expanded to include additional plaintiffs and additional allegations of unlawful activity. Among the new claims are:
1. that Bar/Bri secretly paid a law school to close down its bar review course, thereby giving Bar/Bri a monopoly in which Bar/Bri immediately doubled the price charged law students, 2. that Bar/Bri secretly paid Kaplan more than $500,000 a year to stay out of the bar review business, and 3. that Bar/Bri paid "consulting fees" to certain law school administrators in exchange for preferential treatment at their law schools.
