The lawsuit filed by a grassroots citizen’s group to stop construction of a plutonium trigger plant at Los Alamos National Laboratory is a minor portion of a multi-pronged effort, a spokesman for the group said Wednesday.
“The lawsuit is a small part of the story,” said Darwin Bond-Graham, board member for The Los Alamos Study Group. “The biggest issue is what are the alternatives for the CMRR facility?”
Bond-Graham visited Los Alamos as part of Los Alamos Study Group’s effort to get the word out about its drive to shut down the plant.
The group Tuesday filed a lawsuit in United States District Court in Albuquerque against the Department of Energy, DOE Secretary Stephen Chu, the National Nuclear Security Administration and Thomas Paul D’Agostino, NNSA administrator.
In the lawsuit, the group contends the nuclear plant is being built in violation of federal environmental regulations, which require that an environmental impact statement be completed prior to the construction.
“Defendants’ decision to construct and operate the nuclear facility comprises a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment,” the lawsuit states.
