Audubon Arkansas and the Sierra Club will be in court Wednesday morning before federal Judge Bill Wilson seeking a temporary restraining order to stop construction of American Electric Power's coal-fired Turk generating station in Hempstead County.

Judge Wilson, for example, called down the inadequate environmental study for the proposed taxpayer-subsidized shopping center in North Little Rock's Dark Hollow.
