INDIANAPOLIS A member of the State Board of Education is asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit filed this week by Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz.

Ritz sued the 10 members appointed by the governor Tuesday, saying they violated the state's open meetings law last week when they asked that the calculation of the state's school grades be moved to the Legislative Services Agency. Board Member Tony Walker filed the request for dismissal Wednesday.

The board members say Ritz has been dragging her feet in compiling the grades. But a Ritz spokesman says they don't have the data needed to run the grades.

Ritz chairs the board, but has battled the other members. Former Gov. Mitch Daniels and Gov. Mike Pence appointed the other board members.
