BRADENTON, Fla. — A federal judge in Alabama Wednesday dismissed the Securities and Exchange Commission’s suit against former Birmingham Mayor and Jefferson County Commission president Larry Langford, ending a case that began more than three years ago.

The SEC filed a motion, accepted by Judge Abdul Kallon, to dismiss its claims for disgorgement, prejudgment interest, a civil penalty against Langford, and to close the case, since the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Langford’s pay-to-play criminal conviction on Aug. 5.
