A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed lawsuits filed by Martin and Indian River counties challenging All Aboard Florida’s plan to sell tax-exempt bonds to help pay for its Brightline passenger train service.

Martin County said it was “assessing its next legal steps,” adding that officials are also monitoring any efforts by All Aboard to use tax-exempt bonds to pay for the West Palm to Orlando route.
