A California court on Friday rejected a request by the state's attorney general, Kamala D. Harris, who had sought an injunction to require Corinthian Colleges to disclose more information to prospective students about the company's dismantling. The filing was an addition to a larger lawsuit Harris previously filed against the for-profit chain. That legal challenge includes a wide range of allegations about deceptive marketing and job placement claims. The Superior Court of San Francisco is slated to consider the lawsuit in August.
