Interesting Florida marriage case about economic justice

A Florida Atlantic University student is asking the courts to recognize his same-sex marriage so he can pay in-state tuition rates. The suit, filed in the Fourth District Court of Appeals, argues that Florida’s laws barring recognition of valid out of state marriages of same sex couples violates the United States Constitution.

Gildas Dousset was a student at FAU.  He and his spouse, Paul Rubio (who is a Florida resident), married in Massachusetts in 2013.  Dousset applied for in-state tuition as the spouse of a Florida resident. His application was denied.
