FAMU students sue Florida alleging state underfunds university
Six FAMU students file federal lawsuit alleging Florida systematically underfunds university
A class action lawsuit was filed Thursday by six Florida A&M University students against the state of Florida.
Their claim is the state has not been giving FAMU, an HBCU (Historically Black College and University), equal funds or resources when compared to what other universities are getting, including Florida State University.
The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, seeks a jury trial.
