State Supreme Court hears arguments in Vermont Yankee nuclear plant lawsuit


The Supreme Court of the state of Vermont considered a request for dismissal from Entergy (NYSE: ETR) Jan. 16 in the long-running legal wrangling over the fate of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, the Bennington Banner News reports.

The request stems from a complaint filed by the New England Coalition, an anti-nuclear group, asking the court to circumvent the Public Service Board and shut the plant down. The 620 MW nuclear plant has been the subject of much controversy and legal challenges since the NRC issued a license renewal for the plant in 2011.
