Mills College alumnae sue school over pending shutdown, merger

By: | July 12, 2021

Alumnae of Mills College in Oakland filed a lawsuit against the school, alleging they were blindsided by the college’s recent announcement to shutdown or merge with Northeastern University.

The complaint, which was filed June 7 in Alameda County, claims that the college withheld information and documents from alumni trustees on the board of trustees, “thereby stifling [the] Plaintiffs’ ability to fulfill their fiduciary duties to Mills.”

The group is seeking at least 60 days to review the college’s books in order to better comprehend the options on the table.
