ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A real estate agent is asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit claiming the agent knowingly sold an Annapolis house infested with snakes.

The Capital (https://bit.ly/1HlwuqC ) reports that Barbara Van Horn, of Champion Realty Inc., and her attorney last week filed a motion in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to dismiss the lawsuit that has drawn national attention.

In the motion, Van Horn says mediation has not taken place. She says the contract from the sale of the house states mediation is a prerequisite to any action in court.

In May, Jeff and Jody Brooks filed a lawsuit seeking $2 million or to rescind the purchase and return the house. The family says that four months after buying the house, inspectors found snake dens and tunnels in the walls.
