"Judge Dismisses New Source Review Allegations Against 5 Ill. Power Plants"
"A federal judge has sided with a Midwestern energy company, agreeing to dismiss allegations of Clean Air Act violations at five Illinois coal-fired power plants and partially dismiss claims of violations at a sixth plant.
Judge John Darrah of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois last week granted Midwest Generation LLC's request to dismiss nine counts of a 38-count complaint brought by the Obama administration and partially dismissed a 10th count.
The Justice Department and the state of Illinois sued Midwest Generation last summer, saying the utility made major modifications at the plants without installing the required pollution controls."Source: Greenwire, 03/16/2010
