Representative Matters

In public utility litigation, opposing parties often retain “expert” witnesses from across the country to review and, on occasion, attack the reasonableness of our clients' decisions. 

In a recent case Ron handled, the evidence and argument presented in rebuttal led to the rejection of such expert witness's opinion and proposed million-dollar cost disallowance. The Michigan Public Service Commission concluded not only that the utility's challenged actions were reasonable and prudent but also found that the opposing expert’s recommended action would have been “unreasonable and imprudent.”
