A federal judge on Wednesday threw out a key class action lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that was based on the levee breach that caused much of the flooding of New Orleans.
The ruling relied on the Flood Control Act of 1928, which makes the federal government immune from being sued in connection with the failure of flood control projects.
Bonus points to the first liberal-bot who can figure out a way to complain about that ruling *and* simultaneously to complain about too much federal spending.

P.S. — That judge was nominated — yeah, you guessed it — by Bill Clinton.
