INDIANAPOLIS — TheIndyChannel.com reports a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit from school bus drivers, Head Start teachers and teachers’ aides to receive unemployment benefits during summer break from school.

Judge Sarah Evans Barker wrote, “In short, the plaintiffs were not, and are not now, entitled to the unemployment benefits they sought,” according to the news outlet.

After a change to Indiana unemployment law in 2012 meant they were no longer eligible for unemployment during planned breaks in employment, the workers sued, and the dispute led some bus drivers for Indianapolis Public Schools to not show up for work on Aug. 17, 2012, TheIndyChannel.com reports.

The Indiana Court of Appeals also dismissed a similar suit last year.
