In a blow to clean energy and the public interest, U.S. District Court Judge Garvan Murtha sided with Entergy and struck down key sections of Vermont law in his ruling on Entergy Louisiana’s lawsuit.
He didn’t give Entergy everything it wanted though. The state retains some important oversight of the nuclear plant. It looks like questions about continued operation of the plant will now go back to the Public Service Board.
While the outcome of the ruling is unfortunate, the decision the legislature made was the right one.
