BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A judge has declined to dismiss a lawsuit against North Dakota’s State Health Council over an alleged illegal meeting during which the group approved new rules for radioactive waste.

The Health Council earlier this month said it will redo the August 2015 meeting. Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem had said in March that the council violated state law by not providing adequate notice of the meeting.

The attorney for environmental groups that sued in April said she plans to press forward despite the do-over meeting scheduled Aug. 9.

The Health Council had asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit, but The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2a9yoD0 ) Judge Thomas Schneider declined. He says some facts need to be clarified, including whether anyone was harmed by not having adequate notice of last August’s meeting.
