There's a new twist with the state's prepaid tuition plan. The Alabama Supreme Court has reopened a lawsuit over whether a financial settlement of the program can stand.
The board of the "Prepaid Affordable College Tuition Plan" had reached a settlement for the financially troubled program to pay tuition at 2010 rates rather than current rates.
