ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court won’t get involved in a dispute over closed meetings by the University of Michigan’s governing board.

The state’s highest court turned down an appeal by the Detroit Free Press. The brief order was released Thursday.

The Free Press argues that the university’s Board of Regents closes so-called informal meetings in violation of Michigan law and the state constitution. In response, regents say the meetings are information sessions and no votes are taken.

The Court of Claims and the state appeals court have ruled in favor of the university.
