The U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against DeVry University, run by DeVry Education Group Inc, accusing it of deceiving students about post-graduate job prospects. DeVry Education's share price dropped as low as $19.18 on news of the FTC lawsuit but recovered to $19.82 in midafternoon, down about 16.5 percent from Wednesday's opening trades. The FTC accused the school of being deceptive in saying that 90 percent of DeVry graduates found work in their field within six months of graduation.
