The Vermont Department of Public Service sued the NRC, claiming that the NRC should not have issued a license extension to Vermont Yankee because the plant's water quality permits were not in order.  Today, a federal court in Washington ruled for the NRC and for Vermont Yankee...the license extension was upheld.

I am still at the ANS convention in Chicago, and it's hard to blog for various reasons...like..not enough hours in the day.  However, this short article from Power Engineering contains a link to the ruling, so it is a good place to start reading about Vermont Yankee's victory.
