PG&E Settlement

Dixon Diab & Chambers, and the national law firm of Baron & Budd, reached a $1 billion
settlement with PG&E on behalf of 14 public entities for taxpayer losses caused by the 2015
Butte Fire, 2017 North Bar Fires, and 2018 Camp Fire. Read more details here in this article from The Press Democrat

The payment of the settlement amount of $1 billion is to be incorporated in, and subject to
confirmation of, a plan of reorganization to be filed by PG&E in its pending Chapter 11
bankruptcy case. The settlement does not affect the claims of any residents, individuals, or
businesses affected by the fires.

JAMS Mediator Judge Jay Gandhi (Ret.) presided over several days of in-person mediation
sessions held in San Francisco, Calif. Participants in the mediation included 14 public entities
with various claims from the 2015 Butte Fire, the 2017 North Bay Fires, and the 2018 Camp
Fire. Judge Gandhi’s global proposals included a total payment of $1 billion to be made pursuant
to PG&E’s confirmed plan of reorganization. PG&E and all 14 public entities accepted the
proposals.
