SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

On Nov. 3, a lawsuit was filed by Michael Aguirre and Citizens Oversight Inc. against the decision made by the California Coastal Commission that permitted San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station stakeholders to store spent nuclear fuel at the now-offline nuclear power plant.
The lawsuit argues proper channels of examination were not followed and storing the fuel would be detrimental to human safety.
The lawsuit asks the Superior Court of San Diego County to nullify the decision made by the commission.
A hearing date has yet to be determined.
