Court Hearing on Nuclear Waste.
WHERE: Steps of the Hall of Justice
330 W Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101
At 1:00 PM a Press Conference will be convened on the steps of the Hall of Justice at 330 West Broadway, San Diego, where plaintiff Ray Lutz of Citizens Oversight will  brief concerned citizens about what may be the most important public safety lawsuit in San Diego history. The suit, Citizens Oversight v. California Coastal Commission seeks to rescind a permit allowing the owners of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) to bury nuclear waste on the beach in delicate thin-walled steel containers that are only guaranteed to last 25 years or less.
The radioactive nuclear waste is deadly to humans for 250,000 years.
The law firm of Aguirre & Severson (Attorneys), representing plaintiff Citizens Oversight and others, will argue in favor of revoking the Coastal Commission Permit to the waste at San Onofre on the grounds that it was unlawfully issued. The strategy is simple: If the permit is revoked, Edison will be forced to find a safer location, and it will be forced to deploy transportable “dry casks” instead of the currently planned steel canisters.
We need respectful citizens to attend this hearing.  Plan to arrive at 1:00 PM to attend the press conference.  The hearing will begin at 2:00 PM in Dept C-68.  If there is an overflow crowd we will assemble peaceably in a respectful silent vigil outside the court room, or assemble on the street.
Once the hearing is over, plaintiff Ray Lutz of Citizens Oversight will address the public on the court house steps.  Public Watchdogs will make blue ribbons  available as arm or wrist bands to show solidarity and support for the Citizens Oversight law suit .
