BATON ROUGE - The city's fight to try and block an ndustrial waste landfill in north Baton Rouge is over.

A judge dismissed the lawsuit over the permit for Louisiana Land Acquisitions to operate, saying the city failed to formally raise its issues when the Department of Environmental Quality was considering the permit application.

The DEQ granted the permit back in April.  The city's suit claimed the agency did not consider the health and environmental impact of the community around the proposed site across from an already existing landfill on Brooklawn Drive.

But, there is another lawsuit over the situation.  Louisiana Environmental Action Network filed suit over the permit process in May.
