PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG)

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (1) PG&E had failed to maintain electricity transmission and distribution networks in compliance with safety requirements and regulations promulgated under state law; (2) consequently, PG&E was in violation of state law regulation; (3) PG&E's electricity networks would cause numerous wildfires in California; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about the Company’s business and operations were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
