Great news!


SACRAMENTO, Calif.A state appeals court has reinstated a lawsuit challenging a policy that allows some illegal immigrants to pay lower in-state tuition to attend California's public colleges and universities.
The 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento said Monday that a lower court erred in dismissing the suit brought by 42 students who paid far more to attend college because they were out-of-state residents.

At issue is a 2002 law that made any California high school graduate who attended at least three years of high school in the state eligible for in-state fee breaks, regardless of immigration status.

The plaintiffs argue the law violates a federal prohibition on higher education institutions giving benefits to illegal immigrants without offering the same break to U.S. citizens.

California is one of nine states with laws allowing undocumented residents to qualify for lower in-state tuition rates.

A spokesman for the University of California system says lawyers are evaluating whether to appeal Monday's decision to the state Supreme Court.

The case is Martinez v. Regents of the University of California, CV052064
