Since a pilots group no longer claims that US Airways is violating an arbitration order, the courts have nothing to rule on, a federal judge said in Pittsburgh on Monday in dismissing a lawsuit the group filed in May.

The US Airline Pilots Association of Charlotte, N.C., claimed that the Tempe, Ariz., airline was ignoring an order enforcing part of its 2005 merger agreement with America West that required it to balance the use of its east and west fleets.

U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti noted in her ruling that in subsequent briefs and hearings, the pilots association admitted the airline hasn't violated the order. The group instead sought a ruling to “confirm” the order, but the court doesn't have the power to do that, she said.
