"Louisville Neighbors Sue Over Coal Plant Ash"

"LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A group of Louisville residents who say coal ash from a nearby power plant drifts into their lungs and homes have sued the utility company."

"The neighbors are seeking class-action status against LG&E and its Allentown, Pa.-based parent company, PPL Corp., alleging violations of federal environmental laws, including the Clean Air Act.

The residents around the Cane Run Generating Station in western Louisville have complained for years about coal ash blowing from the plant's massive pile of dust."
