Suspected security breaches at a Maine airport that allowed hijackers to take over a United Airlines jet and fly it into one of the World Trade Center towers are not the airline's fault, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein came as he granted a request by United Airlines and its parent United Continental Holdings Inc. (NYSE:UAL) to dismiss negligence claims by Larry Silverstein, who holds the leases on the World Trade Center property in New York City.

Shares of UAL fell 14 cents to $19.63 in midday trading.
