Judge Rules that ACCJC Violated the Law

Today State Superior Court Judge Curtis Karnow issued a ruling in the case of “The People vs. the ACCJC.”Testimony heard in the weeklong trial of “The People vs. the ACCJC” presented strong evidence that the ACCJC engaged in unlawful practices in pursuit of closing our City College of San Francisco. Judge Karnow found that the ACCJC violated the law in 2013 when it moved to disaccredit our college and that the ACCJC is “liable for violations of the Unfair Competition Law, specifically the law’s ban on unlawful business practices.” Though there is much analysis yet to be done of Karnow’s ruling it is now clear that this rogue agency has violated the law! Read Judge Karnow’s full tentative decision in “The People vs. the ACCJC.”

We must continue the work to move forward with essential next steps in the struggle against the ACCJC. We call for the California State legislature to fix our broken accreditation system, for the Department of Education to reign in this unfair accreditor, and for the California Community Colleges Board of Governors to return democracy and local control to our college by immediately reinstating our elected CCSF Board of Trustees. Please join our court decision rapid response action! Read the CFT statement on today’s ruling.
