PG&E Debtors Will Not Contest Wildfire Causation 

Six months after filing for bankruptcy in January 2019, Pacific Gas & Electric—the utility company deemed responsible by investigators for certain tragic wildfires that raged through Northern California—filed a motion indicating it will not contest causation with respect to the 2018 Camp Fire or the twenty-two North Bay Fires that occurred in 2017. The motion will allow proceedings to continue to estimation hearings.

“Tens of thousands of California residents whose lives have been affected by the Wildfires need to know whether, and how much, they will recover from PG&E so they can continue the hard but necessary work of rebuilding lives that have been devastated by the Wildfires,” the court motion stated.

In May 2019, the California government concluded that PG&E is responsible for several deadly fires in California, including the 2018 Camp Fire.
