Quite the grand larceny, if proven true

28 - page Complaint seeks more than $3,000,000,000 in restitution to more than 17 million customers and an injunction against what plaintiff's said was an improper taking of property by the utility and regulators. The utilities were unjustly enriched by the taking without doe process. Ray Lutz of Citizens Oversight Project states that the PUC.attempted to settle with.some of the Intervenes without a determination of the issue of lack of prudence by the utility operators. Emails by staffers leave no doubt that the PUC is just a pro - utility rubber stamp, Kangaroo court, which denies due process to ratepayers. The failure to determine fault is inexcusable. What is the big hurry to settle this dispute? The operator endangered public safety by placing profits over safety. The PUC is so based toward energy investors that stock quotes were sent to Chairman Peavey every day in the San Bruno matter, for example. This failure to investigate the lack of prudence could only happen by excluding Ray Lutz and Michael Aguirre from the settlement talks. As an lawyer, I would not engage in ex parte contacts with the decision - maker even if invited to do so. Some of the Intervenes wanted to collect their fees by going along to get along and pay their bills, according to what I read. Prudence is the key issue in nuclear power generating of electricity, not profits of the investors. Whistle blowers spelled out the dangers to 8.5 million people surrounding SONGS who have no escape plan. There were substitutions of alloys in the design of the replacement pressure tubes. Vibrations were set up which.could have lead to a massive explosion. The first thing to do is to get all the documents and take depositions of the percent witnesses. We all suspect that the rush to settle is a cover up. What is the big hurry? The utility sprinkles money around as donations to charities to.come and speak in favor of settlement. What do these charities know? Nothing. Get the documents, take depositions of precipitation witnesses, determine fault, then entertain settlement with all Intervenes present. Recuse Commissioners with blatant conflicts of interest. This lawsuit should disqualify two. I went to Costa Mesa and told the Commissioners this myself. They should have listened to me. Now some are defendants.
