By now, you probably know Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them in the Varsity Blues scandal. They couple is accused of dropping half a million dollars to get their daughters into University of Southern California under the guise of them being on the school's rowing team. Now, in the midst of this case, it sounds like Loughlin (who allegedly thought she was "beating rules, not laws") and Giannulli are bracing for more potential battles with USC.
"Lori feels that USC is going to do whatever is necessary to attempt to financially ruin her family," a source told Us Weekly. "USC accepts extremely substantial donations, which will typically result with a child from that family enrolling. Lori wants to expose USC’s admission practices and looks forward to her day in criminal court."
The source declined to give their name, but they sound like a lawyer when talking about potential future civil disputes between USC and the couple, don't they?
“Lori and Mossimo will defend themselves, and would anticipate a very robust and thorough discovery process of USC’s admissions and large financial donations in which a child became a student at the university,” they told the publication.
One further twist in this case is that the couple are represented by the same legal firm as USC, which might become an issue should civil suits ensue.
In other words, this story is far from over for Aunt Becky.
