NEW ORLEANS -- A civil court judge has dismissed a request by the owners of the Dixie Brewery that would have saved the historic building on Tulane Avenue.

Kendra and Joseph Bruno were challenging the expropriation of their property by the state on constitutional grounds.

The decision could finally pave the the way for contractors to begin removing asbestos and demolish at least part of the building to make way for new construction at the site of the new LSU and VA Hospital Complex.

The Brunos say they will appeal the decision.
