Lincoln Journal Star Profiles Domina Law's Nelnet Class Action

The Lincoln Journal Star recently published an article discussing a recent ruling from a federal judge allowing a class action lawsuit filed by Domina Law Group against Nelnet to move forward.

The May ruling concerned Domina Law’s class action against the Lincoln-based student loan servicing company on behalf of student borrowers who accuse Nelnet of cancelling income-based repayment programs before their deadlines.

As discussed in this press release from May, four claims were approved by U.S. District Judge John M. Gerard to move forward. As Dave Domina told the Lincoln Journal Star, that opens the door for millions of student loan borrowers who could potentially be eligible class members.

"Our rough, rough estimate of the class size of people who would be affected by our case in a small amount or large amount could be as high as 6 million borrowers."

Student Loan Serviced by Nelnet? You May Have a Potential Case.

David Domina, along with Attorneys Anthony Fiorentino, Cassandra Miller, and Dan Edelman of Chicago, filed the Nelnet class-action lawsuit in June 2018 on behalf of two classes of student borrowers:

  • Students who borrowed funds more than 5 years before the lawsuit was filed, and who used an IDR plan Nelnet failed to correctly process;
  • Students who fall into a separate legal category with different features used to change lending terms.

Each class is comprised of numerous student loan borrowers who suffered damages as a result of Nelnet’s early termination of repayment plans. Our legal team is actively reviewing potential claims from borrowers across the nation who had loans serviced by Nelnet.
