Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of Edison International

Jul 07, 2015, 15:00 ET from Harwood Feffer LLP

NEW YORK, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Edison International ("Edison" or the "Company") (NYSE: EIX), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

Edison is a utility company supplying and generating electricity, primarily through its largest subsidiary, Southern California Edison ("SCE"). SCE is regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (the "Commission").

In October 2012, the Commission commenced an investigation into the closure of two reactor units at a large Southern California nuclear power plant owned by SCE. In order to resolve the Commission's investigation, Edison entered a settlement agreement for $3.3 billion providing that it would refund customers for excess charges incurred to support the two closed reactor units.

A securities class action has been filed against Edison in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, Case No. 15-cv-01478. According to the complaint, Edison made false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
