PG&E argues Brown's 'reasonableness' rule change is insufficient

PG&E was responsible for sparking at least some of the 2017 wildfires in Northern California, according to preliminary results from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). If the fires can be tied to the utility's actions, inaction or equipment, PG&E could be held liable for billions in property damage under a legal theory called "inverse condemnation." Under current law, claimants need not show that a utility was negligent.
