(INDIANAPOLIS) - A woman who uses a wheelchair is suing her child's southern Indiana school district because the venue for the annual Christmas show isn't accessible.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the lawsuit Thursday in federal court on behalf of Mycal L. Ashby against the Warrick County School Corporation. The lawsuit claims Ashby couldn't attend her son's Christmas show because the venue doesn't accommodate her wheelchair.

The child attends Loge Elementary School in Boonville and was a member of the choir, which performs during the holidays. The past two years the performance was held at the Warrick County museum, which the ACLU says isn't wheelchair accessible.

Warrick County School Superintendent Brad Schneider said the school doesn't sponsor the performance. He said the museum invites school students to participate.
