Transportation officials and an advocacy group in Virginia are battling over whether a Virginia or District of Columbia judge should decide whether drivers on the Dulles Toll Road are being illegally charged tolls used to back bonds issued for the Dulles Metrorail project.

The dispute stems from a lawsuit the Dulles Corridor Users Group and Reston-based Parkridge 6 LLC filed against the Metropolitan Washington Airport ­Authority as well as federal and state transportation officials Aug. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It has delayed a legal decision on whether the toll road revenues can be used to pay for the Metrorail line.
