A PIRG case worth reading: even refundable fees are of questionable legality.

Galda v Rutgers, 772 F.2d 1060

See also the University of Chicago Law Review article "The Right Not To Sue".

I won't be around next semester when the fee is imposed and thus will not have standing myself, but I'm thinking of calling FIRE (again) to see if there's anything I can bring to e.g. the U of A general counsel's office, and I'm certain that it will be possible to find students who do have standing.

(An aside, added later:)

Given that the "Student Government" is considering a resolution against concealed carry on campus, this review is interesting.
