The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland has tossed a motion to dismiss claims of fraud and civil rights violations against Walden University in a class action alleging the school misled students about the length of its doctorate program and its cost, overcharging enrolled members by more than $28.5 million.

Walden University, a Florida company, holds its academic headquarters in Minneapolis, while its principal place of business is in Baltimore.
