Gay FAU Student Sues For In-State Tuition
The French husband of a lifelong South Florida man has sued Florida Atlantic University to recognize their 2013 Massachusetts marriage and allow him to pay in-state tuition fees.
Journalism student Gildas Dousset wed Fort Lauderdale travel writer Paul Rubio July 25, 2013, a month after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the federal government to recognize the marriage of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer.
Dousset said that if he was a woman married to Rubio, FAU would charge him $199.54 per credit hour, but that because the university does not recognize their marriage, he must pay the non-resident rate, $718.09 per credit hour.
