The college admissions scandal is the gift that keeps on giving. The two major names involved with the intrigue, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, are being sued for half a trillion dollars.

Jennifer Kay Toy, a former teacher from Oakland, has accused the two actresses of obstructing her son from getting into university.

"Joshua applied to some of the college where the cheating took place and did not get in," she said in court documents filed last Wednesday. "Joshua and I believed that he'd had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason."

However, the suit doesn't just target the "Desperate Housewives" and "Fuller House" actresses, but the other few dozen parents arrested in "Operation Varsity Blues."

This is just the latest in a wave of fallout from this incident. Loughlin seems to have seen the most damage to her career. Her character has been written off the latest season of the currently running "Fuller House" and disowned by the Hallmark Channel. Her daughter, YouTube personality Olivia Jade, has lost her endorsements with two companies and reportedly she and her sister will not return to school after spring break.

However, several other students whose parents paid their way into college have been affected. On Tuesday, the University of Southern California announced that holds would be placed on the accounts of illegally entered students. This will prevent them from applying for classes or obtaining transcripts until the investigation into their legitimacy is cleared. Once complete, the results could be anything from revoking admission to expulsion.
