Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney Files Amicus Curiae Brief in Indian Point Appeal

Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney has filed a brief of amicus curiae in Richard Brodsky’s ongoing lawsuit against the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Entergy. Maloney, a Democrat, represents New York’s 18th district, covering areas north, east and west of Indian Point. On Tuesday he officially filed the brief with Second Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals. It presents three arguements:

  • The area near Indian Point provides vital food and water to the district and beyond – these resources would be devastated by a nuclear disaster at Indian Point.

  • Indian Point is located in an area vulnerable to earthquakes and storms.

  • Quick evacuation would be difficult if not impossible.
