On January 19, 2018, DRA published a blog post containing statements that referenced recent judicially-supervised settlement negotiations in our ongoing Clean Water Act lawsuit against Portland General Electric. DRA regrets having posted about the negotiations and characterizing the parties’ participation in those negotiations, and expressly disavows any suggestion that any party's participation in the settlement process was not in good faith.
It is and has been DRA’s intent, while engaged in negotiations and afterwards, to adhere to rules respecting confidentiality and to operate in complete good faith. Accordingly, we removed the contested language from our blog and social media links, and we now take this opportunity to express to our negotiating partners our regret for the initial posting.
The updated post can be found here.
