LOS ANGELES � The California Supreme Court refused to hear a case in which a state appellate court ruled last year that thousands of University of California students, including law students, should not have been charged additional fees. Mohammad Kashmiri v. Regents of University of California, 156 Cal.App.4th 809 (2007). As a result, the University of California faces reimbursement costs of about $40 million, said Danielle Leonard, a lawyer at San Francisco-based Altshuler Berzon who represents the plaintiffs. Most of the money will go to students who attended a graduate program at one of the following schools before the start of 2003: UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Los Angeles (UCLA), UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Barbara and UC Santa Cruz. Despite promises that it would not raise fees for continuing students, the UC Board of Regents, which sets rates for schools in the UC system, raised professional degree and educational fees in 2003. Students filed the lawsuit later that year. In November, a state appellate panel found that the UC Board of Regents, which sets rates for schools in the UC system, had violated an implied contract with its students not to raise fees.
