"And we really didn't know at the time that the Union Electric complaint was going to be successful," he said. "We didn't know until 2012 that we had a case."

He said one of the options the city is considering is appealing to 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. But no decision has been made yet.

Scott Trotter of Little Rock was the lead attorney for Entergy. Kimberly Bennett, an attorney for Entergy, said Friday that she was happy with the ruling.

"We were very pleased that the court recognized that Osceola, first had the opportunity to litigate these claims back when it should have and doesn't get a second bite at the apple," Bennett said. "And the FERC has exclusive jurisdiction over this matter, which we thought was also a pretty strong point."
