Three-judge panel of U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia grants NRC's motion, dismisses Beyond Nuclear's appeal against CISFs -- FOR NOW...

See the three-judge panel's ORDER, here.

In essence, the court has deferred to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), for the time being.

What this means is, both the Holtec, NM, and the Waste Control Specialists, TX, consolidated interim storage facility (CISF) licensing proceedings must run their entire course at NRC, before the court will recognize that all administrative remedies have been exhausted.

Beyond Nuclear will pursue its legal objections in those NRC licensing proceedings. But as soon as final licensing decisions have been made at NRC, Beyond Nuclear will renew its appeals in the federal courts.
