WASHINGTON - The Nebraska public power executives and municipal power pool who were enjoined from managing a $529 million bond-funded power project and ordered to pay more than $3 million in damages to a competing agency have submitted motions for a new trial, arguing they were not treated fairly in the first one.

In two separate motions filed with a county court July 16, the nonprofit Nebraska Municipal Power Pool and three executives - J. Gary Stauffer, executive director of the NMPP, Evan Ward, NMPP's director of capital strategies, and John Harms, a gas analyst and member of the NMPP management team - argued there was "irregularity" in the court's proceedings and orders, "and an abuse of discretion ... which ... prevented ... a fair trial."
