Federal judge slams DeVos, Education Department for violating order on Corinthian loans

A federal judge on Monday sharply criticized the Education Department for violating her order to stop collecting the student loans of tens of thousands of borrowers who attended Corinthian Colleges, the now-defunct for-profit education company.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim said in a hearing she was “extremely disturbed” and “really astounded” that the department and Secretary Betsy DeVos had sought to collect on the student loans in spite of her May 2018 order to stop doing so.

“Whether it's contempt or whether it's sanctions, I'm going to entertain them,” Kim said during the hearing, according to an audio recording provided by the court to POLITICO. She added: “I'm not sending anyone to jail yet, but it's good to know I have that ability.”

“There have to be some consequences for the violation of my order 16,000 times,” Kim said, referring to the number of borrowers whose loans the department admitted last month it had erroneously sought to collect.

Kim also said the lawsuit would begin moving forward again, despite opposition from the Education Department.

3. I hope Kim throws that witch in jail.

I despise that woman! I want to see her in an orange jumpsuit deprived of all her luxuries and privileges for years on end. Fuck her and her yachts!
