Vermont Yankee Lawsuit the Actual Text 102 pages

And here is the Judge's ruling, 102 pages, seems kind of long.  Really the conclusion is pages 99 to 102.

Below are quote from the judge's ruling, he would issue relief which in this case means relief to New York Yankee and allow them to continue operating even though past their operational approval limit of 40 years. even though they have has multiple problems at the plant and even though the State no longer wanted them operating.   He says the public interest would be served by issuing permanent injunctions against the state to block the nuke plant from operating==and the he compared the nuke plant case to an Ebay case

Finally, the public interest would not be disserved bythe issuance of the following permanent injunctions. See eBay Inc. v. MercExchange, LLC, 547
U.S. 388, 391 (2006).

And then interestingly enough, he makes a reference to a Pawn Shop Case As a justification for making very specific injunctions which are actually very specific  to a broad rang of things they cant do to shut down he yankee. 

Mindful that relief must be “narrowly tailored to fit specific legal violations,” City of
N.Y. v. Mickalis Pawn Shop, LLC, 645 F.3d 114, 144 (2d Cir. 2011), the Court orders, for the
reasons described in this opinion, see Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(d), the following permanent injunctive
