Massachusetts Supreme Court to hear Merrimack College v. KPMG LLP
The Massachusetts Supreme Court will hear the case of Merrimack College v. KPMG LLP at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 8.
Merrimack College came to the Massachusetts Supreme Court after it argued the decision of the Suffolk Superior Court. Merrimack College requests the court to vacate the order of the Superior Court granting summary judgment and to remand the case for trial.
The plaintiff further requests that order of the Superior Court granting the defendant's motion to amend its answer be vacated, and that an order denying the motion to amend enter from this court.
The original case revolved around a case filed on June 30, 2014, alleging negligence on the part of the defendant KPMG LLP, which served as the independent auditor for the plaintiff, Merrimack College until 2011. Merrimack alleges that during the years 1999 through 2004, KPMG negligently failed to investigate irregularities in the college's financial aid office.
