The Orange County school district is suing two engineering companies that gave the green light to build a middle school on part of a former World War II-era bombing range.

Tons of bomb debris and hundreds of unexploded bombs and rockets have been unearthed at Odyssey Middle School and in its southeast Orlando neighborhood.

The suit filed in Orange Circuit Court Wednesday alleges that the firms, URS Greiner Woodward-Clyde Inc. and Universal Engineering Sciences Inc., and its engineers either knew or should have known that the 34-acre Odyssey site had potential hazards.
