Hoitt v. Dept. of Rehabilitation, A130314

In an action by a disabled petitioner seeking full reimbursement of his tuition associated with pursuing a degree in video game art and design at a private college, under 7155(a)(1) of title 9 of the California Code of Regulations, denial of petition for a writ of administrative mandate is affirmed where: 1) the Department is obligated to fund training at no more than the rate charged by a public institution if it establishes that the public institution is sufficient to meet the client's training needs and vocational objective, regardless of whether the private institution may offer a training program that is better in certain respects; and 2) substantial evidence supports the Board's decision to fund petitioner's education at a public institution rate.
