April 28 (Reuters) - A Colorado federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit in which Harbinger Capital Partners accused Dish Network Corp and its chairman Charles Ergen of violating a federal racketeering law, and sought at least $1.5 billion of damages.

U.S. District Judge William Martinez said the claims that Harbinger sought to pursue could have been brought in a separate lawsuit it filed in September 2013 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. He said that as a result, these claims could not be pursued in his court.
