        The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will conduct an open house on Thursday, May 1, to discuss the agency’s annual review of safety performance at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant, which is. Seaborg, F.2d (D.C. Cir. ), indicates a departure from the principles enunciated in Calvert Cliffs. While the question of judicial review on the merits was not at issue in Seaborg, the court's opinion at indicated reliance on Calvert Cliffs for the proposition that limited review was appropriate. F reed up by the Supreme Court’s ongoing reluctance to engage in depth with the Second Amendment, the Fourth Circuit has taken it upon itself to rewrite Heller en banc. In a . Some security experts worry that at Calvert Cliffs on the Chesapeake and other nuclear power plants, the most vulnerable terrorist target may not be the reactors, but the waste they produce. Last month, President Bush signed into law a plan to ship used reactor fuel, now kept in deep pools of water at power plants in 31 states, to a central.
