MONTGGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Education Association is
seeking dismissal of a lawsuit it filed over an attempt by Gov. Bob Riley's administration to end payroll deductions for the political action committees of AEA, the Alabama State Employees Association and the Alabama State Troopers Association.

In a filing to the Alabama Supreme Court Thursday, AEA attorneys said the lawsuit should be dismissed because the Alabama Legislature passed a bill earlier this month that stopped the payroll deductions and made the suit moot.

AEA and ASEA earlier got Montgomery Circuit Judge Truman Hobbs Jr. to issue a preliminary injunction allowing the deductions to resume after the Riley administration had challenged them. The Riley administration had appealed that order. The AEA asked the Supreme Court Thursday to return the case to Hobbs with instructions to dismiss it.

    Why did Riley wait until he about to leave office to get all these new Bills passed.
