by Haley Walter
A long time employee at Webster University filed a federal complaint alleging the university committed fraud by overcharging veterans for tuition. Now, the United States moved to throw out the complaint that could have cost the university upwards of $75 million in damages and civil penalties.
Webster’s Director of Public Relations Patrick Giblin said the Department of Justice and the Veterans Affairs (VA) investigated the complaint and disagreed with the position of the plaintiff, Vincent Stovall.
