One F-35 suit dismissed

VALPARAISO, Fla. – A federal judge dismissed the city’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Air Force. It was prompted by an Air Force agreement to provide F-35 noise data to the city. In addition to the FOIA suit, Valparaiso has sued the Air Force over its decision to bring 59 F-35s to Eglin Air Force Base and use its runway nearest Valparaiso. Negotiations continue in that case.
