ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by a conservative foundation against Montgomery College in Maryland over a school policy it said illegally offered reduced tuition to illegal immigrants.

A Montgomery County judge ruled Thursday that the plaintiff did not have a right to bring the lawsuit. Washington-based Judicial Watch sued the school in January. The lawsuit was brought after Maryland Delegate Patrick L. McKonough said an audit of the school suggested its policy had cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

Montgomery College’s policy is to offer in-county tuition rates to all recent graduates of Montgomery County public schools. The school has campuses in Germantown, Rockville and Takoma Park/Silver Spring.
