CORPUS CHRISTI -- A group of former nursing students suing Del Mar College showed up in court today for a hearing over their lawsuit against the school.
The judge postponed the hearing because the former student's attorney he must fix some paperwork issues before the hearing could continue. It's been re-set for later next month.
The former nursing students claim that after rumors of possible cheating on an exam all the nursing students were required to take another test.
They say the results of that one test determined whether they graduated.
The former students say this was unfair since they passed all their other tests and classes and never cheated.
Keira Torres said, "We've been ready since December 2011. I'll be ready today, tomorrow, any day that they give. We've been ready, and we're ready to prove what they did was an injustice to students."
A statement from Del Mar reads, "The Court was unable to proceed with the injunction hearing scheduled for this morning, because the application filed by the Plaintiffs was deficient and failed to comply with mandatory procedural requirements. The Court is allowing the Plaintiffs an opportunity to re-submit their application and has re-scheduled the hearing for March 20, 2013 at 9 a.m."
