On May 19, 2009, the US District Court for the Southern District of Indiana declared that three power station renovations at the Gibson station located in Princeton, Indiana, and the Beckjord Station based in New Richmond, Ohio and one at the Gallagher Station in New Albany, Indiana, did not need extra pollutions controls to be installed by the firm.

Regarding two other projects at the Gallagher Station, the court issued a judgment in favor of the EPA.

Marc Manly, chief legal officer for Duke, said “Our employees performed work that was commonly undertaken in our industry to maintain the capability of our facilities to deliver reliable and affordable power to our customers.”

Manly stated that the company made a $5 billion investment in the five states that it caters to for lowering pollutants and emissions.
