In the wake of revelations over academic fraud aimed at keeping athletes eligible, University of North Carolina is facing multiple lawsuits over denial of education opportunities.

CNN reports that former basketball player Kenya McBee has joined a putative class action lawsuit filed by former football player Mike McAdoo claiming that the university denied athletes the education to which they were entitled by forcing them to take classes that actually never met.

According to CNN, former basketball player Leah Metcalf and former football player James Arnold filed a separate class action making similar allegation.
An independent investigation launched by the university revealed last fall that academic fraud had been rife at UNC for many years, with officials wrongly denying any involvement within the athletics department.

A whistleblower, Mary Willingham, recently settled a lawsuit relating to her contentions about the university.
