(AP) - A group challenging California's bullet train will have a last chance to convince a judge who is unlikely to side with them and block the project.
Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Raymond Cadei is expected to hear arguments Wednesday before allowing the $64 billion high-speed rail project to go forward.
Cadei issued a tentative ruling on the eve of the hearing saying he plans to dismiss the lawsuit targeting the state's plan to eventually link Los Angeles and San Francisco with a bullet train.
Cadei says recent changes in the train plan challenged in the lawsuit fall within what voters approved in 2008.
The California High Speed Rail Authority has won a series of legal battles, allowing the project to continue moving forward even though long-term funding remains uncertain.
