SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal judge has rejected San Diego's $250 million lawsuit over pollution cleanup at Qualcomm Stadium.
U-T San Diego says the judge ruled last week in favor of Houston-based Kinder Morgan Energy Partners and the case won't go to trial.
The company owns a tank farm holding about 26 million gallons of gasoline, jet fuel and diesel fuel.
San Diego sued in 2007, contending the firm wasn't doing enough to deal with seepage that polluted ground under the stadium and also polluted groundwater.
Company spokeswoman Emily Mir says the firm continues cleanup work and should finish by the end of the year. Mir says the company has spent more than $60 million cleaning up decades of contamination that occurred before it bought the site.
