The Des Moines school district has asked a Polk County, Iowa judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a former superintendent who sued the district over its handling of explicit emails that led to her resignation.

The judge didn't immediately rule after Wednesday's hearing, over whether the lawsuit filed by Nancy Sebring can move forward. She says the emails were personal and shouldn't have been released. The district says the emails were public records.

Sebring sued in June, more than a year after she left her Des Moines position in May 2012. She soon resigned her new job as Omaha Public Schools superintendent after the emails on her Des Moines district-issued tablet computer became public.
