PALISADES SPENT FUEL SUIT DISMISSED

 JACKSON, Mich., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. District Court Judge Robert Holmes Bell has dismissed a request to block the loading of spent nuclear fuel into temporary storage casks at Consumers Power Company's Palisades nuclear plant near South Haven, Mich. In an order issued this morning in Grand Rapids, Mich., Judge Bell stated that he does not have jurisdiction to hear the challenge brought by a Midwest environmental group, the Michigan attorney general and three private landowners.
 On Monday, May 3, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued the final Certificate of Compliance to the cask vendor, Pacific Sierra Nuclear Associates. Palisades employees began loading spent fuel into the first of two casks early last Friday, May 7, pursuant to the NRC's May 3 certificate. Efforts to complete the process in time for a scheduled refueling in June are continuing.
 Consumers Power Company, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy Corporation, (NYSE: CMS) is Michigan's largest natural gas and electric utility serving almost 6 million of the state's 9 million residents in 67 of the 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
