[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]
The suit was against an unnamed student, known only as John Doe; his mother, and their attorney Eric Grant over the disclosure that the schools paid $7 million to settle their suit alleging that the admissions policy violated federal civil rights law.
The Doe lawsuit was settled in 2007 as the U.S. Supreme Court was considering whether to accept the case.
The Does’ former attorney, the late John Goemans, disclosed that the schools paid $7 million.
The schools said Doe, his mother and Grant will pay $1 million and $400,000 in legal fees and costs to settle their lawsuit, the schools said.
