A federal appeals court has blocked a plan to store more radioactive waste at a nuclear power plant, ruling that federal regulators must consider the likelihood of a terrorist attack more seriously. A three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, in the first ruling of its kind, on Friday unanimously disagreed with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's 2003 finding that an attack was "remote and speculative" and therefore unnecessary to consider. "The whole purpose of this lawsuit, before they build a facility, they would have to protect it, they would have to look at ways they could protect it from a potential attack," said the nonprofit group's attorney, Diane Curran.
