Minnesota wants a design firm and construction contractor to reimburse it for the $37 million paid to victims of the August 2007 collapse of the I-35W bridge in the Twin Cities.

Lawyers for the company say the state paid the $37 million to settle its own liability, and it cannot now claim reimbursement.
