Represented by three Kirkland & Ellis partners, defunct Charlotte School of Law and its parent company on Tuesday filed suit against the American Bar Association and its various entities involved in law school accreditation, alleging that the ABA violated the school’s due process when it placed Charlotte on probation in 2016.

That sanction prompted the U.S. Department of Education to cut the North Carolina school off from federal loan eligibility in December 2016—a financially crippling blow from which it never recovered. The school officially shut down the following August, but the suit hinted that owner InfiLaw Corp. wants to resurrect it.
