WASHINGTON- A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's modeling agency, saying there was insufficient evidence a foreign-born model had been misled or was owed back pay.



US District Judge Analisa Torres found that Alexia Palmer had not provided proof that Trump Model Management LLC fraudulently applied for a US visa for her or that she had been denied fair wages.



Attorneys for both Palmer and the modeling agency could not be immediately reached for comment.



Lawyers for Trump, who owns the agency but was not named directly in the suit, have called the case "frivolous" and "without merit."
