SIX-TIME FELON PG&E WANTS A FREE PASS – DON'T LET THEM HAVE IT

Hundreds of people had their homes ravaged and lives destroyed by the North Bay Fires that started on October 8, 2017. Those victims sought legal representation to investigate whether PG&E was at fault for the fires and if so, to recover for their losses and hardship. The insurance companies have followed suit and filed against PG&E as well. The lawsuits were coordinated together in San Francisco Superior Court, and Frank Pitre and Mike Kelly, both from our legal team, were chosen as Co-Lead Counsel to represent the interests of all individual plaintiffs before the court in regard to liability.

We have learned that PG&E is quietly working at the State Capitol to change California’s liability laws — to shield itself from any financial liability if the company is ever found negligent for any fires.

We need your help to stop PG&E. We ask for two actions.

One, call your legislators!!!

Two, join the citizen-action group “Up from the Ashes”!!!

To call your legislators, go to www.holdPGEaccountable.com, click on “take action now” and start dialing! Tell your legislators you do not want PG&E to dodge responsibility. Here are some suggested talking points…I understand PG&E is attempting to change the law so that utilities are immune from wildfire lawsuits…PG&E is a six time felon that has repeatedly killed people due to a failure to properly maintain their infrastructure. At the same time, its showers its executives with millions in bonuses. Do not let corporate greed win…If a utility causes a wildfire that destroys people’s homes and lives, they should be held responsible under the law – just like everyone else.       

To join “Up from the Ashes,” simply visit www.holdPGEaccountable.com and go to the “join us” page. Membership is free, and as a member you’ll receive important legislative updates, “take action” notices, and information on how you can help defend against PG&E’s efforts to escape responsibility at your expense.

Thank you ahead of time for your efforts. Together, you and other fire victims will be a powerful force against PG&E’s maneuvering.
