Maryland attorney general sues Sojourner-Douglass
Maryland’s attorney general has sued SojournerDouglass College to account for or repay about $400,000 in state grants that the school, which closed last year, allegedly had not used for authorized purposes. The office, which filed suit in Baltimore Circuit Court, is seeking full documentation of how the college spent three grants awarded to its nursing program, Attorney General Brian E. Frosh said Friday in a statement. The college, located in East Baltimore, closed last summer after losing its accreditation and struggling financially for years. Its president, Charles W. Simmons, said Friday that he was unaware of a problem with the state grants. He said the school continues to work on reopening.
