ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler is asking the state's highest court to order that a lawsuit over the University of Maryland's withdrawal from the Atlantic Coast Conference proceed in a Maryland court.

The attorney general's office has made the request to the Maryland Court of Appeals.

The attorney general says the Prince George's County Circuit Court has wrongly decided to hold the case while waiting for the outcome of a separate lawsuit in North Carolina.
