Attorney General William Tong is shutting down accusations by Stone Academy that blames state officials for the school's abrupt closure.
Stone Academy closed suddenly this past winter, leaving its nursing students scrambling.
Tong says the school is misleading the public, outlining his concerns in a letter to the school's attorney.
"Stone is the bad actor here, and it is Stone and its ownership and management who engaged in what is clearly a long-running course of misconduct. Stone unilaterally shut down and stranded its students and graduates. There are no alternative facts here. This is a fact beyond dispute. No amount of misdirection is going to change that, and Stone's attempts to blame its misconduct and decision to shut down on its state and federal regulators is as absurd as a driver who is prosecuted for driving 100 miles an hour blaming his arrest on the state trooper who pulled him over," Tong stated in the letter.
