MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. — A superior court judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by the owners of the fishing vessel "Citation" challenging the team's disqualification from the 2010 Big Rock Tournament.
The "Citation" won the tournament, catching a record-setting blue marlin, but was found to have a crew member who lacked a fishing license.
The judge's order Monday upheld the boat's disqualification and awarded the first-place money to the crew of the "Carnivore" and second place to the "Wet-N-Wild."
