A judge has thrown out a lawsuit by Greenwich Village residents that would have halted New York University's controversial expansion plan.

Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice ruled Tuesday that the plaintiffs haven't taken all the steps that would have warranted stopping the project, according to The New York Post.

The City Council last summer approved a scaled down plan by NYU to add 1.9 million square feet of classroom space, labs and other facilities.

Residents said they were disappointed with the judge's ruling. Their lawsuit accused government decision-makers of illegally turning over public land.

It also claimed the approval process lacked transparency and denied the public meaningful input.
