Notes of Decisions

Court of Appeals had no jurisdic­tion to review Energy Facility Siting Council’s decision that site certificate was not re­quired, in light of statute that confers upon Supreme Court judicial review of council’s “approval or rejec­tion of an applica­tion for a site certificate.” Forelaws on Board v. Energy Facility Siting Coun., 307 Or 327, 767 P2d 899 (1989)

Notes of Decisions

The Energy Facility Siting Council failed to adopt sufficient standards concerning financial ability, qualifica­tions to construct and operate, and power needs. Marbet v. Portland General Electric, 277 Or 447, 561 P2d 154 (1977)
