EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Members of Michigan State’s women’s swimming and diving team are seeking an injunction to prevent the school from dropping the program.

Attorney Jill Zwagerman said a request for preliminary injunction was filed Friday.

The filing seeks to restrain the school from eliminating the women’s varsity swimming and diving team — or any other women’s teams or athletic participation opportunities.

In an accompanying brief, the plaintiffs said Michigan State is in violation of Title IX and has a history of failing to comply with Title IX’s athletic participation opportunity requirements.

A Michigan State spokesman said the school is not commenting on pending litigation.
