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.
The Vermont Supreme Court has ruled that a judge can impose restrictions on a search warrant in an electronic privacy case.
The state had complained that a lower court judge had placed too many restrictions on a search warrant that Burlington police had obtained for a man's computer and other electronic devices in an identity theft investigation.
Police believed a Burlington man had used a computer to apply for credit cards in the name of an elderly New York state man.
The Vermont Supreme Court has rejected a series of appeals filed by opponents of a project to build a series of wind turbines on Lowell Mountain.
The towns of Albany and Craftsbury and a citizens group called the Lowell Mountain Group had asked the Supreme Court to overturn an order issued by the utility-regulating Vermont Public Service Board that gave permission for the 21-turbine project to go forward.
After the board issued the final permit for the project last year, construction on the facility began. It is expected to be generating electricity soon.
