PacifiCorp Plans Appeal Of Verdict

(Portland, OR) -- PacifiCorp says it plans to appeal a jury verdict that found it liable in four wildfires over the 2020 Labor Day weekend. Twenty-five-hundred homes were damaged or destroyed by the fires. PacifiCorp released a statement saying a trial will never restore what was lost. Pacific Power, a division of PacifiCorp in Oregon, was the first to develop a Wildfire Mitigation Plan starting in 2018. They have developed their own weather forecasting team, strengthened their grid and increased vegetation management. The company says it's confident they will overturn the decision on appeal.
