TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - As expected, the Florida Supreme Court has received a challenge to a ballot proposal that would loosen Florida's class size limits.

The 1st District Court of Appeal on Thursday expedited the case by sending it directly to the justices without issuing a ruling of its own.

The Florida Education Association is appealing a trial judge's decision last week in Tallahassee.

Chief Circuit Judge Charles Francis rejected arguments by the statewide teachers union that the title and ballot summary of the proposed state constitutional amendment are misleading and unclear.

It's too late to take Amendment 8 off the Nov. 2 ballot, but the union wants a court order preventing the votes from being counted.
