PG&E Plan Has Broad Support From Fire Victims, Lawyers Say

Lawyers for more than half the wildfire victims who negotiated a $13.5 billion settlement with PG&E Corp. say their clients plan to vote overwhelmingly in favor of the bankrupt utility’s reorganization plan.

The attorneys represent about 40,300 of the estimated 70,000 who lost homes, businesses and other property in blazes blamed on PG&E equipment. Members of the largest group, represented by the firm Watts Guerra LLP, have voted nearly unanimously in favor of the deal, with more than half of 18,000 total votes already cast, according to people familiar with the matter.

Richard Bridgford, founding partner of Bridgford, Gleason & Artinian, represents 4,300 of the victims said he believes his clients will vote overwhelmingly for the plan.
