The legal battle between electric utility company Arizona Public Service Co. and Energy Arizona Corp. Commission utility regulator Robert Burns has temporarily stopped because Burns is trying to find an attorney to represent him.
Burns said on Thursday, September 22 that he will give Arizona Public Service and its parent company, Pinnacle West Capital Corp., more time to produce the documents which he subpoenaed from them. Burns also demanded the company’s chief executive, Don Brandt, be subject to questioning in October regarding the political donations his companies made.
Burns’ main agenda in giving Arizona Public Service more time also hinges on his own self-interest. He erroneously thought that fellow members on the Arizona Corp. Commission would accept his idea to hire outside counsel. They did not, and now he needs more time to find a suitable lawyer.
