Law Students Sue UC for Raising Tuition...

And win!
A California judge has ordered the University of California to pay $33.8-million to former students who accused it of breach of contract when it raised tuition over the past three years despite an apparent pledge not to do so. The class-action lawsuit represents a rare victory for students in litigation over tuition increases.

or maybe lose...The financial impact of the judgment on the university system and how to recoup the money will be considered by the regents after all appeals are exhausted, Mr. Vazquez said, but the ruling could mean further tuition increases for professional students.
