South Carolina v. United States (P)

The district court entered an injunction that required the U.S. Department of Energy to remove not less than one metric ton of defense plutonium from the State of South Carolina within two years. Contrary to the government’s arguments on appeal, the district court properly enforced statutory responsibilities imposed on the Department by Congress and appropriately crafted and entered the injunction. The Department claims compliance will be impossible but offered the district court no evidence to support that position.
