SCE Statement on Court's Final Ruling Denying Samuel Lawrence Foundation Petition
On Sept. 13, Superior Court of Los Angeles Judge Mitchell Beckloff issued his final ruling in the lawsuit filed by the Samuel Lawrence Foundation against the California Coastal Commission.
The lawsuit centered on the coastal development permit issued by the Coastal Commission in 2019 which allowed SCE to begin dismantling the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
Below is SCE's statement on the final ruling.
Southern California Edison is pleased with the Court’s final ruling denying the Samuel Lawrence Foundation challenge to the coastal development permit issued by the California Coastal Commission for the dismantlement of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).
The dismantlement of SONGS is moving forward with a focus on safety, environmental stewardship and transparency through public engagement.
SCE maintains a shared interest with the local communities to move forward with dismantling the plant in a safe and timely manner and restoring the SONGS site for return to the U.S. Navy.
The AWS office building is the latest structure to be dismantled at SONGS as part of the site's decommissioning.
