The city of El Segundo, Los Angeles International Airport's most contentious neighbor, announced Friday that it is dropping its lawsuit challenging what it said were illegal growth policies at LAX. El Segundo officials said the city will continue to oppose airport expansion. They said the suit was withdrawn because it had served its purpose by pushing Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that runs the airport, into complying with environmental laws.
