NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A judge has thrown out a lawsuit seeking to block plans for a new Major League Soccer stadium in Nashville. The Tennessean reports that Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle on Monday found that the plaintiffs lacked standing because they hadn't demonstrated any harm or injury in the case. The group Save our Fairgrounds opposes the construction of the stadium and surrounding development because they say it will interfere with other activities at the site, including the state fair, auto racing and flea markets.
