Judge rejects appeal in Southbridge, Mass. landfill case

Two environmental groups cannot immediately appeal the dismissal of their claims that the town of Southbridge, Massachusetts and a landfill operator violated federal laws by polluting wetlands and residents’ drinking water, a federal judge has ruled.

State and common law claims are still pending.
