TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A leading opponent of Kansas' immigrant tuition law is encouraged by a ruling by a California appellate court on a similar law there.
Kris Kobach, a law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, said the implications from the California ruling are ``pretty huge'' for Kansas.
Kobach represents 42 students in the University of California system who were paying higher tuition rates. They object to a law allowing some illegal immigrants to pay the lower rates normally reserved for California residents.
Kansas and California are among 10 states providing such a break for qualified illegal immigrants.
A California court dismissed the lawsuit there, but a three-judge appeals panel overturned that decision Monday.
