Federal judge tosses pilots' US Airways lawsuit

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A federal judge in Pittsburgh has dismissed a US Airways lawsuit filed in May by a pilots' group.

"The Tribune-Review" said U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti ruled Monday that since the US Airline Pilots Association no longer claims that US Airways is violating an arbitration order, there's nothing to rule on.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based group claimed that the Tempe, Ariz., airline was ignoring an order enforcing part of its 2005 merger agreement with America West that required it to balance the use of its east and west fleets.

Conti noted that in subsequent briefs and hearings, the pilots group acknowledged the airline hasn't violated the order. The group instead sought a ruling to "confirm" the order, but Conti said the court doesn't have the power to do that.
