The state's highest court will soon decide whether to hear arguments in the fight over the Northern Pass transmission line.

Thursday was a key deadline in the project's appeal to the state Supreme Court. Opponents of the proposal have now filed all their briefs in the case.

The filings are from stakeholders like the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and towns along the power line's nearly-200-mile proposed route through the White Mountains into Central New Hampshire.
