Seattle • A judge has dismissed a lawsuit over a proposal to build a $490 million professional basketball and hockey arena in Seattle.

King County Superior Court Judge Laura Middaugh ruled Friday that the case was filed too soon, and that it could be brought again if and when the arena deal is finalized.

The complaint argued that the arena plan violated a Seattle law that bars the city from investing in sports facilities unless it makes a profit.

Hedge fund manager Chris Hansen is trying to buy the Sacramento Kings franchise and move the team to Seattle, but the plan still requires league approval.

Another judge already rejected a different lawsuit over the arena deal, one that claimed it violated state environmental law.
