(Newser) – Failed solar company Solyndra got court approval for its bankruptcy plan today—despite objections from the US government. The government had accused the plan of providing $341 million in improper tax breaks for investors, but a judge said the government didn't prove that the main goal of Solyndra's bankruptcy plan was to provide said tax benefits. An IRS attorney says the government may appeal, Reuters reports.
