Vermont Supreme Court Hears Arguments on Nuke Plant
A lawyer for the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant's owner told the Vermont Supreme Court it should dismiss a complaint that says the plant has been disobeying orders from the utility regulating Public Service Board.
During oral arguments Wednesday, Entergy Corp. lawyer Kathleen Sullivan said the board was in error when it ruled twice last year that by continuing to operate the plant, Entergy was violating the terms of the board's ruling that allowed the company to buy the plant in 2002.
Sullivan wants the court to dismiss a petition by the anti-nuclear group New England Coalition that the plant be shut down.
The Coalition wants the court to enforce a sale condition that Entergy needed state approval to operate beyond the 2012 expiration of the plant's initial license.
