Sept 15 (Reuters) - The U.S. Chapter 11 bankruptcy of the Baha Mar mega-resort in the Bahamas was dismissed by a Delaware Bankruptcy judge on Tuesday who agreed with the project's Chinese contractor that the dispute should be resolved in the Bahamas.

Construction of the nearly completed Baha Mar ground to a halt earlier this year due to a dispute between the Chinese construction company and the local developer. It will be one of the biggest resorts in the Caribbean when it opens.
