Appellate panel upholds dismissal in bridge case

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The dismissal of a lawsuit over the $2.3 billion Ohio River bridges under construction at Louisville has been upheld.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously in rejecting claims that Kentucky and Indiana violated the National Environmental Protection Act and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The appeal was brought by the Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation. CART is a public transit and cycling advocacy group located in Louisville. The group did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday.

The organization alleged that the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and the Indiana Department of Transportation violated federal environmental and civil rights laws.

But the appeals panel said in the ruling Thursday that there was no indication that the states violated the law.
