PLEASANT RIDGE, Mich. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a woman who says a suburban Detroit police chief sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager decades ago.

Pleasant Ridge Chief Kevin Nowak has said the allegations are false. He was one of eight people the woman sued.

The 41-year-old woman says she was sexually assaulted in 1990 while participating in a police ride-along program in Garden City. She was 15 years old at the time, and Nowak was working in the Garden City police department.

The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak (https://bit.ly/1IDcarP ) reports that Detroit U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Leitman last week dismissed the suit, saying it was beyond the three-year statute of limitations.

No criminal charges have been filed.
