    MONTPELIER - A Vermont Superior Court judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a school district against a parent critical of some school decisions who had filed a formal request for documents about why he was being barred from school grounds.

    In a decision dated Tuesday, Rutland County Judge William Cohen said that allowing the Rutland-Addison Supervisory Union to proceed with the case against Marcel Cyr of Benson, would "subvert the statutory framework" of the state's Public Records Act.

    The Vermont American Civil Liberties Union helped represent Cyr.

    Earlier this year the district sent Cyr a no-trespass order barring him from school board meetings or setting foot on school property. In its court filings, naming Cyr as "John Doe," school officials said they questioned Cyr's mental state and they feared violence.
