TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s Mito District Court ruled on Thursday that Japan Atomic Power Co should not be allowed to resume operations at its Tokai Daini nuclear power plant, public broadcaster NHK reported.

Operation of the plant in Ibaraki prefecture, northeast of Tokyo, has been suspended since a major earthquake in March 2011, NHK said.
