Law Center’s Motion is Granted; District’s Motion is Denied

Both parties had filed separate motions for summary judgment.  On November 20, 2012, the District Court granted the Law Center’s motion on the state law claim for restitution, holding that all plaintiffs who overpaid are entitled to restitution.  The court also denied the district’s motion for summary judgment on the Law Center’s federal equal protection claim.  Even though this was a rational basis claim, with the lowest level of scrutiny, the court held that we had produced enough evidence to go to a jury.
