The battle over the proposed Pinon Ridge uranium mill has now moved to district court in Denver.  The Daily Planet explains that the Telluride environmental group Sheep Mountain Alliance has filed suit against the Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment when they learned of the agency’s decision to grant a radioactive materials permit to Energy Fuels.  Bothe Dept. of Public Health and Energy Fuels have filed motions urging the court to dismiss SMA’s lawsuit.  The CDPHE motion, filed by Attorney General John Suthers, argues that SMA lacks the standing to file its lawsuit.
