Ever since Hollywood star, Lori Loughlin and her designer hubby, Mossimo Giannulli, got entangled in the college admissions scam, it's been a back and forth in courts.

These days, the latest update about their legal issues shows that the couple wants to be let off the longtime court case.

LOUGHLIN'S PLIGHT

The "Garage Sale Mystery" actress has a new claim concerning the controversy she and her hubby are entwined in. According to her attorney, Rick Singer, who received the bribe, was in collaboration with the Government to nail an accusation on the couple.

The implication of this is that Singer set a trap for the "Full House" star, which led to her being accused of the said crime. A memo obtained by People read:

"The Government's extraordinary misconduct warrants extraordinary relief. The facts known so far justify dismissal of the indictment."

MORE REVELATIONS

A source further opened up to People in plainer terms claiming that Singer deceived Lori into believing that she was donating money for a good cause. The source added that this is why the TV star keeps pleading "not guilty."

A judge, therefore, ruled that the court hearing is to resume by October.

Singer, who is the owner of "The Key: a Private Life Coaching and Counseling Company," was said to have made the star actress believe she was contributing money as other parents have done.

AMID CORONAVIRUS

Lori might still be held up in court over the allegations levied against her, but it seems like her daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, are moving on well. Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, the girls are finding solace in the joy of TikTok-ing.

On Olivia Jade's Instagram story, the young adult and her sister heartily danced to a trending beat on the popular app. Even before self-quarantine, the girls seemed to have gotten over the college scam scandal, unlike when it was still fresh in 2019.

On the other hand, the girls' parents have not been "left off the hook" even though the COVID-19 crisis has been disturbing court proceedings. A judge, therefore, ruled that the court hearing is to resume by October.

It all began last year when the "When Calls the Heart" actress and her spouse got "picked up" on a College scam accusation, which saw them trying to get their daughters recruited for college. They had allegedly paid a sum of $500,000 to Rick Singer.
