A San Diego federal judge declined Tuesday to dismiss charges in the so-called "Alliance" insurance fraud and legal corruption case against a lawyer who claimed that he had served as a secret informant because he had been promised immunity from prosecution. U. S. District Judge Judith N. Keep said prosecutors had agreed that Leonardo T. Radomile, 44, a San Diego lawyer, would act as an informant in the complex case. But prosecutors never promised him immunity, Keep said.
