EWA BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A class action lawsuit has been filed against the state over claims that Campbell High School is "grossly" overcrowded and nothing being done to address it.

The suit, filed by State Representative Bob McDermott also asks for air conditioning for Campbell, which currently has more than 3,200 students, nearly twice its capacity.

McDermott also wants improved capacity in the cafeteria, which only has room for 890 children. 

The suit names Governor Ige, the school superintendent and the Board of Education chair as defendants.
