California Turned Down on Pollution Suit

A federal judge in San Francisco has thrown out a lawsuit that the state attorney general filed against the six largest automakers, in what had been billed as a novel attempt to hold the companies financially liable for global warming.

Suit Tossed

The suit will be reviewed by the California Attorney General’s office to see if it should be re-cast and resubmitted.
