G&E and Co-Counsel Joshua Dubin File Suit in Florida Concerning HBCUs

In a class action complaint filed today by G&E and civil rights attorney Joshua Dubin, plaintiffs allege that the state of Florida deliberately and systematically maintains a racially segregated higher-education structure that favors traditionally white schools over Historically Black Colleges & Universities, known as HBCUs. The suit was filed on behalf of six graduate and undergraduate students at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), in Tallahassee, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief under Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and federal and state laws.
