NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge has ruled in favor of the New York Mets in a ballpark dispute over kosher hot dogs.

Kosher Sports Inc. had sued the Queens Ballpark Company, the team subsidiary that operates Citi Field, in 2010. The food vendor claimed the team violated a 2008 contract by preventing it from selling kosher hot dogs on Friday nights and Saturdays. The company also accused the Mets of failing to provide enough vending stations at the Queens ballpark.

Judge Jack B. Weinstein in Brooklyn Federal Court said Tuesday that the contract did not give Kosher Sports the right to sell hot dogs and other foods at every Mets game.

The judge also said the vendor defaulted on part of its 2010 payment of $55,000 and may have to pay damages.
