Suit Accuses Florida of Broken PromisesJuly 7, 2017 |

Two siblings who graduated from the University of Florida say the state short-changed them on their education.
Alexis S. Geffin, UF 2017, has teamed up with her brother, Ryan J. Geffin, UF 2016, in a lawsuit to claim they did not receive the intended benefits of more than $1 billion in private donations to Florida colleges and universities. Alexis is a sports reporter in Wausau, Wisconsin, while her brother pursued graduate studies at UF.
The siblings who grew up in Weston filed the suit last week in Leon County. It seeks to force the state to abide by four separate state laws that obligate the state to “match” private donations to state colleges and universities.
