AUGUSTA — Former nursing students have withdrawn their lawsuit against a California company that ran a Maine-licensed nursing program.
A complaint in U.S. District Court claimed InterCoast Career Institute’s nursing program didn’t deliver on promises. An InterCoast representative said such claims were “grossly inaccurate” and that the program received state approval.
The lawsuit was dismissed last month.
The Maine Board of Nursing received anonymous complaints about InterCoast’s program in 2012, and the board told InterCoast it had to obtain accreditation for its program by 2014. By 2015, InterCoast agreed to surrender its state certification and wind down its operations.
InterCoast is facing two other federal lawsuits by former nursing students. One lawsuit is set for jury trial.
