SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Even though Michael Moore's controversial pre-election speech at U-V-S-C has come and gone, a lawsuit against the school is not going anywhere.

A real-estate broker and a Utah Valley State College student are not dropping the lawsuit they filed over the appearance.

The lawsuit claims student government leaders overstepped their authority when they committed student fees to pay for Moore's October 20th visit.

Attorneys for the Utah Attorney General's office, who are representing the school, have asked the suit to be dismissed. They say the two men suffered no injury and therefore lack standing to bring a suit.

One of the plaintiffs Kay Anderson says the students paid 25-thousand dollars to throw a -- quote -- "liberal bash" and taxpayers deserve answers.
