WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has criticized a Kansas military school for a motion he describes as aimed chiefly at getting positive media attention.

U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum on Thursday denied a motion by St. John's Military School for summary judgment in its favor on a former cadet's claim of abuse. The judge called the motion a media "grab" lacking merit and borderline sanctionable.

Eleven ex-cadets have sued the Salina boarding school alleging abuse.

Lungstrum says the school's motion did not address the basis of the claim by an ex-cadet who says he was bound, gagged and branded.

The judge also warned he would deal harshly with unnecessary filings by either side intended mainly to draw media attention.
