(INDIANAPOLIS) - A judge has dismissed the public records lawsuit filed against the Indiana House Republican Caucus and Rep. Eric Koch (R-Bedford).

The lawsuit was filed in April after an energy institute submitted records requests for emails, documents and other correspondence between Rep. Eric Koch and various groups.

Court records say the judge dismissed the lawsuit "with prejudice," meaning it can't be brought back to court.

The House has said public records laws don't apply to them.

House Speaker Brian Bosma said in March that complying with public records requests could dissuade constituents from contacting their legislators.

"You'd truly be surprised at the things people share with their legislators," Bosma said. "Many times we're the point of last resort when family tragedy occurs."
