Supreme Court orders Department of Justice and Edison to respond to Public Watchdogs’ petition on San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)

On August 25, the United States Supreme Court ordered the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), and Southern California Edison  to file a formal response to Public Watchdogs’ petition.

In what appears to be an act of hubris, Southern California Edison (SCE), and the Department of Justice declined to file a response.  Now, the Court has ordered them to do so.  Both the DOJ and SCE have filed requests to extend the deadline for a response to October 1, 2021.  On September 27, DOJ and SCE filed additional requests to extend the deadline until November 1, 2021.  On September 28, the Court granted the request.

We look forward to reading the responses, and will publish them here when they are posted on the Supreme Court website.
