RVT Exams Settlement Notes
- Miller, et al. v. Inteleos, Inc.
- Case No. 1:17-cv-00763-DAP
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio
Plaintiffs Stephanie Miller and Mary Alyce Dawson brought this class action lawsuit against Inteleous on behalf of anyone who took an RVT exam administered by ARDMS. Inteleous is the organization that manages the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography, or ARDMS. The plaintiffs claim that the company falsely reported they failed their sonography exam, causing them and Class members to lose wages, job opportunities, and basically ruined their reputations as credentialed sonographers.
“Plaintiffs and class members paid a $250 fee to defendant in exchange for defendant’s proper administration and accurate scoring of the exam. Plaintiffs and class members suffered the loss of this fee because they paid for an exam that was improperly scored, and their exam results were inaccurately reported,” the lawsuit asserts. “Indeed, because plaintiff Dawson and other class members falsely believed that they had failed the exam, they paid another $250 fee to defendant in order to re-take the exam, even though they had already passed the exam and received no benefit from re-taking the exam.”
