Hanamirian Law Firm Represents Rizzieri School for the Healing Arts in Federal Suit

The Hanamirian Law Firm is representing the Rizzieri School for the Healing Arts, a South Jersey institution operating since 1928, in a wrongful expulsion claim by a former student. An article by reporter Jim Walsh in the September 6, 2016 edition of the Camden Courier-Post, Massage student sues over expulsion, describes the student’s claims and response from attorney John Hanamirian.

In her federal lawsuit, the student, Ka-Msiyara Corbett of Glassboro, contends she was falsely accused by a customer of sexual misconduct, leading to her expulsion. Corbett massaged the school’s customers as part of her training.

"Rizzieri schools have been educating students since the 1920's and do not, and have not, ever engaged in any discriminatory conduct," Hanamirian said.

The suit seeks unspecified damages, including the student’s tuition and lost income "that she could have commenced earning upon completion of the school." Hanamirian said the school had refunded the balance of her tuition before the suit was filed.
