Bank of Hemet in California has filed a motion asking a Riverside Superior Court judge to dismiss a $1.6 million class action filed by shareholders of a local thrift it bought in 1992.

The suit, filed last year by more than 500 Inland Savings and Loan shareholders, accuses the Hemet-based bank's directors of breach of contract and fiduciary duty. If the motion to dismiss fails, the judge said the case will be tried this spring.
