CPUC Picks George Mitchell As Mediator Behind San Bruno Mayor's Back

The California Public Utilities Commission is in a lot of hot water. On Tuesday, the CPUC announced that it selected Former Senator George Mitchell as mediator in the ongoing talks to determine the fine to be levied against Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The trouble is, only PG&E knew of Mitchell’s appointment and no one else, and Mitchell’s law firm, DLA Piper, has a number of utility clients. The move places the CPUC in the position of looking like it’s trying to engineer a low fine for California’s utility giant. for more, see: http://zennie62blog.com/2012/10/18/san-bruno-fire-cpuc-pge-pick-george-mitchell-mediator-victims-reps-94089/
