Federal Judge Won't Block SoCal Ed Settlement

LCG, Nov. 12, 2001--U.S. District Judge Ronald Lew on Friday refused to delay a settlement between Southern California Edison Co. and state regulators designed to allow the utility to recover $3.3 billion of its debts and help the utility avoid bankruptcy.

A San Francisco-based consumer "watchdog" organization, The Utility Reform Network (TURN), had asked the court for a stay of the agreement reached between SoCal Ed and the California public utilities Commission.

Judge Lew, who had approved that settlement on October 5, said further delay would risk harming the utility, its creditors, its customers and the general public. He called TURN's arguments "repetitive" and "without merit."

Michael Strumwasser, a TURN lawyer, said "We are not surprised that Judge Lew turned us down given his prior rulings," and promised to pursue a stay in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

The utility said it was confident that the settlement would not be derailed. "This ruling reaffirms that settlement. We're pleased. It's an important step in the process," said Stephen Pickett, a SoCal Ed attorney.
