WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- A U.S. District Judge in Washington has been asked by the Obama Administration to dismiss a three-year-old lawsuit filed by the Detroit International Bridge Company which owns the Ambassador Bridge.

The DIBC wants the court to order the Coast Guard to grant them a permit to build a second span over the Detroit River.  The company is asking the court to block the construction of the recently approved International Trade Crossing which is a joint effort between the State of Michigan, and the U.S. and  Canadian governments.

Judge Rosemary Collyer will not issue a ruling in the case until December 20th.
