FAU Student: Gay Marriage Should Qualify him for In-State Tuition

Update:

Our Newschannel 5 partners are reporting that Gildas Dousset and his partner, who married in Mass., have filed suit against Florida Atlantic University.

 

Original Story:

A South Florida college student is asking an appeals court to recognize his same-sex marriage for the purposes of paying in-state tuition. 

Gildas Dousset says Florida's laws barring recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages are unconstitutional.    He and his spouse legally married in Massachusetts last year. Dousset applied at FAU for in-state tuition as the spouse of a long-time Florida resident, but he says he was turned down because the school refused to recognize his marriage.
