The Legal Report

While I took the weekend off and left town (silly me!) the report by Morgan Lewis & Bockius was issued. Entergy had hired this law firm to do an internal investigation who-knew-what and who-said-what about underground pipes and radionuclides. The report was much discussed, even before its release. In an earlier post, I suggested that some of the report might not be released because it contained personnel matters which should not be made public.

The report was released over the weekend. A storm of commentary has followed: it is incomplete, Entergy isn't playing straight, etc.

I have to admit, I haven't read the report yet.

Until I do read the report and blog about it, I suggest two sources of information.

The Blog: Rod Adams wrote an excellent post on the report and miscommunications as weapons. His post includes links to the legislative acts that formed the oversight panels, background on the panel participants, and even some comments by one participant. A very strong and well-written post, and he got this blogger off the hook!

The Report Itself: If you want to go straight to the horse's mouth on the report, read the actual legal report here. It is over 100 pages long. You have been warned.
