A Montgomery County judge has dismissed a couple's lawsuit alleging that a top private school in Potomac jeopardized their son's college career by not doing enough to help him.

The Daily Record reports that Judge David Boynton ruled that Robert and Valerie Bramson didn't identify "any expressed term that was breached." The couple accused the Bullis School in Potomac of breaching its contract by failing to help after the boy received a poor grade, causing him to receive rejection letters from colleges.

Bullis' lawyers argued that the couple didn't demonstrate any violations of the enrollment agreement, student handbook or school regulations, says WJLA TV.

The family's attorney says the school violated oral agreements in advertisements that promoted "an extraordinary educational experience" in a "nurturing environment." He expects to appeal.

Oh please, did the boy apply himself. Did he do what he was supposed to do in school? There is just so much a teacher can do for a student. These parents are ridiculous, I'm glad this judge threw out this case. People sue for everything.
