A security lieutenant at Indian Point nuclear power complex has filed a lawsuit claiming the plant is not secure and that staffers regularly watch DVDs, play video games and sleep on the job.     

The $1.5 billion lawsuit was filed Tuesday in state Supreme Court by Clifton Travis Jr. It names as defendants the plant owner, Entergy, and three managers.

Travis still works at the plant, but says he's been marginalized over his security criticism.     

The suit also claims the plant also routinely fails anti-terrorism drills. Travis and his attorney are expected to comment further at a news briefing Friday.   

The company said it had not yet been served with the lawsuit.

Spokesman Jim Steets says Entergy invested more than $100 million in the last 10 years on security and the federal government has deemed it secure.
