The rape claim against two prominent Virginia Tech football players has been thrown out of federal court.
The judge flatly dismissed Christy Brzonkala's case.
DOUBLE BOXES Keith/Melanie


Keith Humphry broke the story last Christmas and has the first word on the dismissal.
SUPER=@Keith1;


Judge Jackson Kiser had already let the University off the hook, ruling that the actions of the football players could not extend to Virginia Tech.
This is what was left:

Brzonkala claimed she'd been a victim- -not just of sexual assault on the Tech campus.
Her lawyer said the athletes, Toni Morrison and James Crawford discriminated against the Fairfax woman because she was a woman... that these were NOT random acts of violence.
(----------------)
ANCHOR=Keith


The claim was brought under a new federal law, the Violence Against WOmen Act.
Congress passed it and the President signed it just days before the alleged rape occurred in September, 1994.
But Judge Kiser has ruled the law Unconstitutional.

The F-B-I is expressing confidence this afternoon that it will find those responsible for the bombing at the Olympics.
Officials say there are no suspects yet, but they do have sketches from eyewitness accounts.
Saturday's pipe bomb explosion at Centennial Park killed a woman and injured more than 100.
A Turkish camerman also died after suffering a heart attack while rushing to photograph the aftermath.
Meantime, Olympic officials plan to reopen the park tomorrow, but with much tighter security.
Officials are boosting the number of security people, setting up more surveillance cameras, and allowing for random searches of people's bags.
Dave Fehling has the latest from Atlanta.
