Fight over Vermont Yankee in 2 courts this month

Posted: Updated:

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Lawyers involved in the fight over the future of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant will be busy in the coming weeks.

A federal appeals court in New York has set Jan. 14 as the date for oral arguments in an appeal of a Vermont federal judge's order last January saying the state could not force Vermont Yankee to shut down.

Two days later, the Vermont Supreme Court will hear a claim by the anti-nuclear group New England Coalition.

That group says that by continuing to operate the plant past its initial license expiration date of this past March 21, Entergy Corp. is violating the terms of the state permit it got when it bought Vermont Yankee in 2002.
