NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters has filed another lawsuit in its pursuit of a surveillance tape of an incident in 2014 that led to a charge against a University of Oklahoma football player.

The Oklahoman ( ) reports that the organization filed the lawsuit Tuesday against Cleveland County Court Clerk Rhonda Hall, the court clerk’s office and the City of Norman.

Running back Joe Mixon was suspended from the team after pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault for knocking a woman unconscious near campus.

The suit seeks release of the surveillance tape after the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals ruled in February that a Cleveland County district judge wrongfully dismissed a lawsuit seeking to make the video public.

In May, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the video is an open record.
