California judge scheduled to rule on ISO suit today

Certain in-state California generators have supplied power to the California Independent System Operator (ISO) under court order since Tuesday, after the grid operator took several to court. The generators were asking for the state to guarantee payment to continue selling to the ISO. Late Wednesday US District Court Judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. extended until 5 pm Thursday a temporary restraining order requiring Reliant Energy to continue selling power to California if asked by the ISO. Damrell said he will rule Thursday.
