Nancy Krop '87 Named as 2010 CLAY Award Winner

Nancy Krop '87 has been named as one of 44 attorneys to receive the 14th annual California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year Awards from California Lawyer magazine.  Krop, as a sole practitioner in Redwood City, won a $78.5 million whistleblower settlement, the largest in U.S. Department of Education history, for a case involving improper incentive pay to recruiters at the University of Phoenix.  The victory came seven years after two university recruiters came to her claiming that the nation's largest for-profit university had defrauded the department by obtaining billions in federal student loans and Pell Grants while making improper incentive payments to admissions recruiters based on the number of students they signed.
