Federal judges finds against accrediting agency for revoking accreditation of massage school
A federal judge has revoked an accreditor's decision to strip a massage school of its accreditation, finding that the decision by the accreditor was arbitrary and unreasonable. The decision by U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady reversed the March 2012 actions of the Accreditation Alliance of Career Schools and Colleges to revoke the accreditation of the Professional Massage Training Center in Springfield, Missouri. The judge also awarded $429,000 in damages in favor of the school.
