A federal judge in Chicago dismissed a lawsuit that blamed the city for last year's underground flooding that caused more than $1 billion in damage. The city claims Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. is responsible for the April 13 flood because of work it did in 1991 replacing wooden pilings in the Chicago River to protect a bridge.
