As we have written about in past posts, the issue of inverse condemnation remains on the forefront in the state given the continuing, severe wildfire risks and other climate change impacts. Brad Kuhn was recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal in “PG&E Isn’t Alone in Facing Liability Risk Over California Fires,” addressing liability associated with inverse condemnation. Willis Hon also commented on the current legislative situation in an E&E News EnergyWire article: “Legal 'whipsaw' threatens PG&E's future.” If you’re interested in potential legislative reforms, Brad and Willis authored a November 7th article in the Daily Journal entitled “As California burns, inverse condemnation and cost recovery issues dominate California’s electric utilities’ legal framework.”
Stayed tuned to our blog for continuing coverage of developments relating to this important area of law and public policy in California.
