PG&E Faces Accusations Of Double Crossing Wildfire Victims

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) – Pacific Gas & Electric fended off allegations that it’s breaking its promises to the victims of catastrophic wildfires ignited by the utility’s outdated equipment in Northern California as it tries to preserve its plan for getting out of bankruptcy in an unraveling economy. Attorneys for a wildfire victims’ committee leveled the accusations on Tuesday during an acrimonious court hearing. PG&E’s lawyers scoffed at the allegations as a desperate bid to renegotiate a $13.5 billion settlement reached months ago. The committee is trying to win court approval to send a letter to victims warning of problems in PG&E’s plan. A judge expects to rule in the next day or two.
