San Francisco Superior Court Judge Curtis Karnow has ruled that the City College of San Francisco cannot be stripped of its accreditation in July 2014, as previously scheduled, until a trial can determine whether the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) acted lawfully in evaluating the school. The injunction filed by San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera was only partially granted, as the ruling does not prevent the ACCJC from sanctioning the state’s other 111 community colleges, which Herrera had sought.

The ACCJC has recently come under scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Education and is under threat of losing its own accreditation for allegedly allowing “political bias, improper procedures, and conflicts of interest to unlawfully influence its evaluation of the state’s largest community college.”
