A Marion County judge has ruled that a lawsuit against members of the State Board of Education can move forward.
The suit alleges public access violations. At question is whether board members violated Indiana's open meetings laws by circulating a letter seeking changes in who calculates the state's "A-F" school grades. The suit mirrors a challenge state Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz filed last year against board members.
The suit was thrown out because a judge ruled that she needed the approval of the Attorney General to file the suit.
