Suspended on TRO

A pair of state regulatory commissions have suspended TRO proceedings. The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities suspended its proceeding on Wednesday while reserving the right to pick it up again if there is a stay in USTA. The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission dropped the TRO on Tuesday. Similarly, the Kentucky Public Service Commission announced that it intends to halt its TRO case on April 14. A hearing examiner in Delaware recommended suspension of the TRO case and the Delaware Public Service Commission cancelled hearings scheduled for April 13. The DPSC is set to meet on April 6 to consider ending the proceeding entirely. Regulators in Arkansas and Massachusetts are considering the same question.

All told, about half of the state commissions will have dropped the TRO before the 60-day window expires. An earlier post on this subject can be found here.
