Ga. immigrant students seeking in-state tuition

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A hearing is set for a lawsuit filed by a group of young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and want the Georgia university system to grant them in-state tuition.

The roughly three dozen young immigrants have been granted temporary permission to stay in the U.S. under an Obama administration policy introduced last year.

The lawsuit filed in August asks a judge to instruct the university system's Board of Regents to allow them to qualify for in-state tuition.

At a hearing set for Thursday, a DeKalb County Superior Court judge will hear arguments on the students' request for the judge to issue a ruling without a full trial, and the state's request to move the case to Fulton County Superior Court.
