By Minna Sugimoto - bio | emailKAUAI (KHNL) - A judge on Kauai Tuesday denied a motion to disqualify the state attorney general from leading the criminal investigation into the deadly Ka Loko Dam break.
Seven people were killed when the dam burst in March 2006.
The lawyer for Ka Loko landowner James Pflueger wants Attorney General Mark Bennett off the criminal probe, saying there's a conflict of interest because the state faces a civil suit.
Bennett says he's done nothing unethical.
Pflueger's lawyer has the option of re-filing his motion with additional information.
