ABA Journal carries the story. Apparently, SCU has a clinic that went after a debt collection law firm and now that firm is striking back at the school. (Disclaimer: I often teach at SCU, but not this semester.) Key allegation:
"[The school's clinic] is not a law firm, but instead is the alter ego of SCU and is engaging in the illegal practice of law using the bar license of Maurer [the supervising lawyer/prof] and collecting attorney fees and adding them to its' [sic] general fund, and or specific fund to support its' [sic] educational activities."
