INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A judge could decide later this month if three Indiana school districts can go forward with a lawsuit challenging the way the state distributes education funding.

State attorneys want the suit dismissed saying that schools are state entities and lack legal standing to sue the state.
