On Monday, a federal court ruled against a mom who sued the Warrick County School Corporation after she was unable to see her son sing at Christmas concerts.

According to the suit, the concerts were held at a venue not wheelchair accessible.

Mycal Ashby sued the school corporation in September 2016, accusing Loge Elementary School of holding Christmas concerts at the Warrick County Museum in 2014 and 2015.

The court ruled against Ashby because they determined the concert was not technically a school activity.

The school corporation argued that the event was held by the museum and that the students were invited to perform.

The ruling states that since the concerts were part of a series of “holiday happenings” put on by the museum, the performing teachers and students were invitees of the museum.
