Tear gas suit's dismissal urged
Syracuse responds to woman gassed during police standoff with her neighbor in 2007.

The city of Syracuse has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by a woman whose 303 Gere Ave. apartment was gassed last year during a police standoff with her neighbor.
While arguing Malay, 59, has no grounds to sue the city, the motion did not dispute Malay's account of the gassing. She fled the apartment that day and hasn't been back.
