in California, the California Power Exchange (CalPX) had its energy contracts commandeered,
and Sullivan Taketa LLP was retained by CalPX to pursue compensation. The multi-billion
dollar filing that the firm made with the California Victim Compensation and Government
Claims Board as counsel for CalPX was the start of highly publicized litigation and
re-regulation that reestablished a market for wholesale electrical energy in California.
