New York v. Nuclear Reg. Comm'n, No. 08-3903

By FindLaw Staff on December 22, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's denial of rulemaking petitions filed by Massachusetts and California, the petition is denied where the Commission gave due consideration to the relevant studies, and thus the court was required to defer to their expertise in determining the proper risk level associated with the storage of nuclear material in spent fuel pools.
