ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A south Georgia environmental group promises to keep fighting a plan to build coal-fired power plant, despite losing another round in court.

An administrative law judge denied an appeal filed by Flint Riverkeeper.

The group claims a permit extension for the Longleaf plant in Early County was granted illegally.

They say the company should have to go through a new application procedure and pollution analysis.

Supporters of the plant say it will create needed jobs in an economically depressed area.
