"Texas Judge Will Rule Against Las Brisas Power Plant Air Permit"

"AUSTIN, Texas -- A Texas District Court judge Monday issued a letter announcing that he intends to rule against the state environmental agency's air permit for a proposed power plant in Corpus Christi."

"The ruling by Judge Stephen Yelenosky comes in a lawsuit brought by environmental groups seeking to reverse the permit authorizing the proposed 1,320 megawatt, $3.2 billion Las Brisas Energy Center planned for Corpus Christi's Inner Harbor.

Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund, the local Clean Economy Coalition, and a coalition of Texas cities joined forces in 2009 to challenge the plant's air pollution permit, which the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued on January 26, 2011."
