Idaho State Board of Education wants a judge to toss Labrador lawsuit


The State Board of Education’s hired attorney wants a judge to toss Attorney General Raúl Labrador’s open meetings lawsuit against the board.

Labrador’s arguments against the State Board — and its closed-door meetings to discuss the University of Idaho’s plans to acquire the University of Phoenix — “needlessly undermine the people’s trust in government,” according to the motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

IdahoEdNews reports, the motion continues a legal battle between Labrador and the State Board of Education.

The State Board hired a law firm, saying it needed independent counsel to defend itself against Labrador’s lawsuit.

A hearing on the motion to dismiss is scheduled for Aug. 3rd.
