 • La James Institute facing fraud lawsuit from the state.

 The Iowa Attorney General Consumer Protection Division Thursday filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against La' James International College in Fort Dodge alleging the cosmetology school engages in deceptive, omissive and unfair practices. The lawsuit filed in Polk County District Court stated what many students experience is a school with extraordinary turnover of instructors resulting in instructorless' classrooms and inconsistent instruction, lack of access to practice their skills and ultimately an institution that treats them more like free labor than students". La' James operates cosmetology and massage schools and salons in Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Fort Dodge,Iowa City and Johnston, and has one  location in Illinois and Nebraska. The company is privately owned by Cynthia Becher. The lawsuit seeks a court order barring the defendants from misleading and concealing material information from students, unspecified reimbursement to students and unspecified penalties and costs. There has been no comment by La' James officials on the lawsuit filed Thursday.
