BHOPAL, India — After nearly three decades, a lawsuit involving polluted soil and water produced by Union Carbide''s former chemical plant in Bhopal, India, has been dismissed, Bloomberg reported.

The lawsuit is one of at least two pending cases involving the facility, where a gas leak killed an estimated 22,000 people in 1984.

Dow Chemical Co. acquired Union Carbide in 2001, about 16 years after the accident.

A U.S. district judge ruled Tuesday that Union Carbide and its former chairman, Warren Anderson, were not liable for environmental remediation or pollution.
