Frustrated with what they called months of political grandstanding by state schools Superintendent Diane Douglas, a unanimous Arizona board of education voted last week to sue if necessary to force her to provide its investigators with access to teacher records used in disciplinary matters.

The board also voted to sue if Douglas won't redirect Web traffic to the board's new website.

The schools chief has sparred with the board since February, when she tried to fire its executive director and her deputy. She has filed several lawsuits in that time and lost in every round.
