California Public Utilities Commission General Counsel Frank Lindh recused himself as chief advisory attorney in investigations into a PG&E Corp. (PCG:US) pipeline explosion that killed eight people in 2010.
Lindh will be replaced by retired CPUC assistant general counsel Arocles Aguilar, according to an e-mailed statement from the agency. Some CPUC lawyers working on the probes and proposed penalties for PG&E had asked to be reassigned, the regulator said June 5.
