TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It's now up to a judge to decide
whether the Florida Legislature or Board of Governors has the final
say over tuition and other state university governance issues.
Friday was the deadline for lawyers to submit written arguments
to Circuit Judge Charles Francis in Tallahassee.
A group headed by former Gov. and ex-U.S. Sen. Bob and the
Legislature each are seeking summary judgments.
Graham led an initiative creating the board to oversee Florida's
11 public universities. His group claims the board has sole
authority over governance including tuition. The Legislature now
shares tuition authority with the board.
Regardless of how Frances rules the case is expected to wind up
in the Florida Supreme Court.
