An Ingham County judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging Michigan's right-to-work law.

The Lansing State Journal reports that Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina rejected the suit on Monday because it should have been filed directly with the state Court of Appeals. She didn't rule on the underlying legal challenge.

The right-to-work law takes effect in late March and makes it illegal to require financial support of a union as a condition of employment.

Union activist Robert Davis sought an injunction to prevent the law from applying to state workers because they're under the purview of the Michigan Civil Service Commission.

Gov. Rick Snyder has asked the state Supreme Court to rule. Unions meanwhile have filed other right-to-work lawsuits in state and federal courts.
