RICHLAND, WA- After a protest in front of the Academy of Cosmetology Monday, the school's attorney responded.

The Academy of Cosmetology's attorney said the case concerning Jennifer Nelson, the former student who filed a lawsuit against the school, deals with a breech of contract and a Consumer Protection Act violation. 

These are currently part of a current court case, but she said the emotional distress claim was dismissed.

The Department of Licensing inspected the school and the situation and found no evidence of any issues their office would handle.

The department said this is more of a contractual issue.
