Hearing Date Set For Kansas City Plant Suit

The D.C. federal district court has set an October 19, 2009 oral argument date in NRDC v. Chu, No. 08-1709 (PLF) (D.D.C.). This case challenges the Department of Energy’s decision to abandon a highly contaminated nuclear weapons parts manufacturing facility in Kansas City, Missouri and move operations to a greenfield further outside the City, without first preparing an EIS.
