The Securities and Exchange Commssion wants a court to uphold its complaints against former Qwest executives who say claims against them should be dismissed.

The SEC filed documents in federal court Thursday saying the objections to its lawsuit are without merit.  It alleges the former executives' actions caused Denver-based Qwest to improperly report revenue.

Former Qwest finance chief Robert Woodruff, former president Afshin Mohebbi and former accountants James Koz lowski and Frank Noyes had argued the government is invoking state-secrets privileges that will hurt their defense.
