BOSTON (AP) - A court has rejected a lawsuit by independent candidate for Massachusetts governor Evan Falchuk.

Falchuk was seeking to participate in the debate, scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. in Worcester.

Falchuk said he was initially invited to the debate, but the offer was later rescinded. Falchuk filed the lawsuit in Suffolk Superior Court.

Falchuk said he was disappointed with the decision, but was glad to have his day in court.

Falchuk is one of three independent candidates on the ballot including Scott Lively and Jeff McCormick. All three have polled in the low single digits.

Falchuk alleged a breach of contract, saying organizers applied “new, unspecified conditions” to retract his invitation.

The two major party candidates - Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker - are included in the debate.
