GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by three former CertusBank executives who claimed they were unjustly fired.

Multiple media reported that that in a ruling Friday, a judge said the former executives’ complaint wasn’t an issue for federal courts. Legal filings show the former executives agreed to the dismissal so they might refile the action in state court.

The three said someone released confidential bank and financial information about CertusBank customers that was used to defame the executives and caused them to be terminated. The lawsuit said the plaintiffs, who are black, built Greenville-based CertusBank into the largest minority-founded and operated financial institution in U.S. history.

CertusBank said the three were part of a leadership team that failed to provide timely and accurate budgets, among other problems.
