JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -

Jackson State wants to take Grambling State, the Southwestern Athletic Conference, or both to court to recover up to $600,000 lost because Grambling's football team refused to travel to Jackson State.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that documents obtained through an open records request show that Jackson State has been pushing the Mississippi attorney general's office for five months to pursue legal action.

It reports that the university's persistence and the newspaper's inquiries have led Attorney General Jim Hood to review the plea for help.

Jackson State's vice president of finance, Michael Thomas, says losing homecoming game money has put the school's budget out of balance for the first time in years.

Ticket refunds accounted for about $475,000 of the estimated total.
