Pacific Gas and Electric Company and its creditors spent hours in bankruptcy court Monday poring over the nitty gritty of the utility´s plan to emerge from bankruptcy. Months before California´s largest utility can put its plan in motion, it must get U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Dennis Montali´s approval of its disclosure statement.
The statement is an explanation of how it plans to reorganize itself and pay its creditors. Montali could approve it as early as Wednesday. The statement will serve as a guide for P.G.and E.´s thousands of creditors as they decide whether to support or reject the utility´s plan.
