ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - A judge has thrown out a lawsuit against a northeast Ohio high school filed by a father who claims the behavior of school staff led to his daughter losing a school election.

A Lorain County judge ruled this week that the lawsuit filed by Charles Brown against Clearview High School in Lorain and its staff members can’t proceed because the defendants have governmental immunity.

Brown tells The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1eQ2Y5V ) he’ll refile the lawsuit in federal court.

Brown and daughter Aliceison claim in the lawsuit that a principal and teacher preferred Aliceison’s opponent in the sophomore class election at the school last fall. Brown claims staff members made efforts to cheat and bully Aliceison to make sure she didn’t win.

The school’s principal, Jessica Tafe, has denied the allegations.
