Land Court Case Update 8/11/16

In August 2013, a group of local residents sued the town of Plymouth and Entergy over violations of local zoning laws at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station. The lawsuit asserts that the town building inspector illegally approved Entergy’s massive new nuclear waste storage facility as an “as of right” use, without a special permit. Since 2013, Entergy has tried various legal tactics to get the case thrown out of court and to limit the evidence that the citizen plaintiffs can use to prove their case. The plaintiffs survived all of Entergy’s maneuvers and the case goes to trial Aug. 8 at Land Court in Boston. It is open to the public and is scheduled for the weeks of Aug. 8 and Aug. 22. As soon as we receive word on the case we will post it on the website. Stay tuned!
