A federal judge yesterday dismissed a lawsuit filed by an Iraq war veteran who claimed “The Hurt Locker’’ was based on his experiences as a bomb disposal expert. The ruling ended Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver’s case against the producers of the Oscar-winning film, its screenwriter, and director Kathryn Bigelow. Sarver sued over the film days before it went on to win best picture at the Academy Awards in 2010. Sarver claimed screenwriter Mark Boal based the film on him and that he was presented in a false light. (AP)
