IE farm dismisses hot air balloons lawsuit

INDIO, Calif.

JCM Farming Inc. sued the balloon operators in 2009, alleging the farm owner's property rights were being violated.

The suit claimed the balloons were flying too low and were a nuisance.

The attorney for the balloonists said the dismissal of the lawsuit enables hot air balloon flights to continue immediately.

Most had stopped flying because the balloonists said the lawsuit was too expensive to fight.
