A nuclear power developer’s lawsuit against the Snake River Alliance was dismissed by an Ada County judge.

Fourth District Court Judge G.D. Carey dismissed the lawsuit brought by Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc against the Snake River Alliance, a group opposing the company plan to build a nuclear power reactor in rural Elmore County. The company sued in August claiming it was defamed by Alliance Executive Director Andrea Shipley when she described it and its chief officer as “scammers.”

“AEHI sued for defamation, and asked the Court to muzzle my clients and punish them with a substantial monetary judgment,” said David Knotts, an attorney for the Alliance. “By acquiescing to the Motion to Dismiss, AEHI really is admitting that its defamation lawsuit was meritless from the beginning.
