Virginia Uranium, Inc. v. Warren, 16-1005

In a uranium miner's challenge to the Virginia General Assembly's ban on uranium mining 'until a program for permitting uranium mining is established by statute,' Va. Code Ann. section 45.1-283, the district court's dismissal of plaintiff's complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted is affirmed where the federal Atomic Energy Act (AEA), 42 U.S.C. sections 2011, 2014(z), does not preempt state regulation of conventional uranium mining.
