Kathy Little v. Louisville Gas & Electric Co.

<> Kathy Little v. Louisville Gas & Electric Co. - 11/2/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit, Case No. 14-6499. This case involves the operation of the Cane Run power plant in southwestern Louisville, owned and operated by Louisville Gas and Electric Company. Plaintiffs allege that the ash, dust, and coal combustion by-products are not only annoying, but also, they are composed of dangerous elements, including arsenic, silica, lead, and chromium. The Appeals Court ruled, "The district court's order denying defendants' motion to dismiss plaintiffs' state common law claims is affirmed. We lack jurisdiction to consider the other, unrelated orders challenged by the plaintiffs in their brief on this interlocutory appeal."
