The Recorder: CPUC’s Top Lawyer Frank Lindh Blasted by Staff During, and After, Keynote Speech [ TLR Note: 1. Frank Lindh: former top lawyer @ PG&E, father of “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh, operator of Ophelia Basgal of CaliforniaALL scheme. Father Lindh hired “Team James Brosnahan” of MoFo to represent son i.e. James Brosnahan, Tony West, Raj Chatterjee — all also behind CaliforniaALL scheme. 2. Clearly, Brosnahan’s ego and strategic errors reasons John Walker Lindh is rotting in jail for being at the wrong place/wrong time since Lindh never intended to fight America. YR once opined rather than using Brosnahan/West/Chatterjee, it would have been better to only assign Susan Mac Cormac (who speaks with Southern Accent) to deal with media in Virginia, politically conservative prosecutors who already despised Brosnahan)

SAN FRANCISCO — For the first time in more than a decade, the California Public Utilities Commission is hosting the three-day annual meeting of the National Conference of Regulatory Attorneys in San Francisco. And attendees got more than they bargained for on Monday.

Frank Lindh, the CPUC’s embattled general counsel, surprised the crowd — and his own staff — with a speech about a “hypothetical” state utility regulator whose staff attorneys needed to learn a lesson about loyalty and good judgment.

On hand were regulators from around the country who watched as Lindh’s own staffers heckled him for what they saw as a veiled attack on his legal team. The tense scene offered a glimpse of the firestorm within the CPUC’s legal department as it deliberates the financial penalty against Pacific Gas & Electric Co. for its role in the deadly 2010 San Bruno explosion.

Lindh’s speech has ratcheted up tensions between the agency’s staff attorneys and Lindh and CPUC President Michael Peevey, according to interviews with CPUC attorneys and internal communications obtained by The Recorder

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
