By J.J. Gallagher, ABC news

Students of troubled Detroit schools filed suit on Tuesday against the state of Michigan in what could be a historic legal case that seeks to establish a constitutional right to literacy.

The students, backed by a California law firm, filed the suit on Tuesday, reports WXYZ, a local ABC affiliate.

Los Angeles-based public interest firm Public Counsel says the suit is the first of its kind, seeking to establish a legal right to literacy based on the 14th amendment of the constitution.
