CHICAGO - Attorneys for Hennepin County, Minn., and the owner of a recycling center financed by $129 million of county revenue bonds filed a motion this week to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that they defrauded bondholders.

The lawsuit, filed in April in Hennepin County District Court by a group of bondholders, alleges that the county and the recycling center failed to adequately disclose that the county had the authority to redeem $124.5 million of the outstanding revenue bonds before a 1996 optional call date. The bonds were issued in 1986. The suit is a consolidation of three separate suits filed last year.
