DeKalb immigrant students seeking in-state tuition

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A judge said he needs more information and more time in the case of a group of young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and want the Georgia university system to grant them in-state tuition.

The roughly three dozen young immigrants have been granted temporary permission to stay in the U.S. under an Obama administration policy introduced last year.

They filed a lawsuit in August asking a judge to instruct the university system's Board of Regents to allow them to qualify for in-state tuition.

At a hearing Thursday, DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Mark Anthony Scott heard arguments on the state's request to move the case to Fulton County Superior Court. Scott said the arguments were complex and asked both lawyers to submit an additional filing.
