(Newser) – Judge Melvin L. Schweitzer yesterday tossed out a lawsuit brought by nine law school grads unhappy with their job prospects, citing his opinion that "not every ailment afflicting society may be redressed by a lawsuit." The New York Supreme Court judge, while sympathetic to the New York Law School alums, said the case was basically an example of caveat emptor—"let the buyer beware," the New York Times reports, adding that the decision could be bad news for similar cases across the nation.

Schweitzer added that college grads considering law school are "sophisticated" enough to look at all the data before making a decision. (And many, apparently, are deciding not to apply.)

Maybe these students should have looked at what the cost of their education would be, the prospects of a job and what it would reasonably pay, especially on the low end. If you can't figure out that the law degree and a high debt from the education isn't going to cut it then you have no business being a lawyer.
