Court allows education board lawsuit to proceed

– A Marion County judge has cleared the way for a lawsuit to proceed against members of the State Board of Education that alleges public access violations.

Marion County Judge Cynthia Ayers denied the state’s request that the case be dismissed on questions of whether the plaintiffs had standing. Democratic lawyer Bill Groth said Tuesday he hopes to continue with discovery in the case.
