The State of North Carolina has filed and won a lawsuit against the Tennessee Valley Authority to clean up several of their coal fired power plants near the North Carolina border. I find this interesting, considering North Carolina is home to at least three of the fifty dirtiest power plants in the United States.
This is a frightening area of law to watch develop. As the article points out, the State of California has two similar lawsuits pending against energy producers and car manufacturers. Who will be next to sue or be sued?
