Federal judge dismisses suit over stem cell funding

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Obama administration’s funding of embryonic stem cell research, a victory for stem cell researchers in California and elsewhere whose work has been under a cloud.
The suit, brought by two adult stem cell researchers who said funding violated the 1996 Dickey-Wicker law against taxpayer funding of projects that harm embryos, put a pall on stem cell research even as new facilities were built in California with state and private support.
