PG&E says U.S. intends to file superseding indictment against the utility

PG&E noted in a regulatory filing that on June 2, a status conference was held in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California regarding the federal criminal prosecution of the Utility for alleged knowing and willful violations of the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act relating to record keeping, pipeline integrity management, and identification of pipeline threats. At the status conference, the U.S. Attorney's Office stated that it intended to file a superseding indictment against the Utility in July 2014. The Utility continues to believe that criminal charges are not merited and that it did not knowingly and willfully violate minimum safety standards under the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act as alleged.
