CALIFORNIA-- PG&E is pushing back against a judge's proposals saying they aren't possible. The judge wants the company to comply with all vegetation management and clearance laws to make sure trees do not threaten power lines and cause fires. The judge says the company wasn't doing enough.
PG&E said it's not possible to quote "monitor every tree at every moment of every day" to make sure they follow the law. Attorneys for the company said trees may fall at any point from man-made or natural causes and don't think they should be liable.
The company sought bankruptcy protection in January in the face of billions of dollars in potential liability from recent wildfires, including the Camp Fire.
