OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) A superior court judge has ruled against Tumwater teachers who have been on strike for just over a week.

The Olympian reports that Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Lanese granted a preliminary injunction Wednesday in favor of the Tumwater School District, but did not set a return-to-work date. He also will not preemptively penalize teachers who refuse to comply with the ruling, leaving that to the school district to seek penalties in court.

Tumwater Education Association issued a news release saying that teachers overwhelmingly voted to continue to strike, even though they could be held in contempt of the judge's ruling.

Classes continue to be canceled in Battle Ground and Tacoma, as teacher strikes continue.
