CLEVELAND (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court says the city of Cleveland isn’t responsible for income lost by a downtown parking lot while crews filmed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

The lot’s owner had sued over lost parking fees, saying the approval of a permit that closed streets during filming amounted to an unconstitutional seizure of property. The company said that it lost significant daily income during two weeks of filming in 2013 and that its reputation was damaged.

A district court found Cleveland responsible for the lost income, but the Ohio Supreme Court overturned that order in a 6-1 ruling Tuesday.

The high court noted that one entrance to the lot remained accessible during filming and that the production company paid for hundreds of parking spots.
