There has been another lawsuit filed against Pacific Gas & Electric Co. involving last year’s deadly pipeline explosion in San Bruno, Calif. The suit was filed in San Mateo County Superior Court by the personal representative of James Franco, who died from injuries suffered in the September blast that killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes. It’s alleged that poor maintenance and construction resulted in an “inevitable explosion” of the PG&E gas pipeline. The San Francisco-based company already faces dozens of lawsuits from victims’ families and people who allege they were impacted by the inferno. Eric Laughlin, a lawyer with Hamilton, Laughlin, Barker, Johnson & Watson, located in Topeka, Kan., represents the Franco estate.

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me

I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
