Security & Terrorism

9th circuit court bldgMothers for Peace is on the home stretch of the protracted litigation in our second challenge of the Nuclear Regulatory commission before the Ninth circuit Court.  Like the 2006 ruling in favor of Mothers for Peace, the outcome of our case has the potential to affect policy for all 104 nuclear facilities in the nation.  If Mothers for Peace is successful, the case will set a major new precedent for government accountability with respect to security-related decision-making in the post-9/11 era.  The oral argument took place on November 4, 2010. A decision is expected by the Spring of 2011.
