Speaking of Enron:

"Federal regulators handed a major victory Friday to Western utilities
and cities trying to escape exorbitant contracts they made with
disgraced energy giant Enron Corp. during the power crunch of 2000-01.

"In a six-page order issued Friday evening, the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission determined that Enron was engaging in illegal
activity at the time it entered the contracts with the utilities - and
that therefore, a hearing should be held to determine whether Enron
should be allowed to collect profits it would have received had those
contracts been fulfilled.,,SB111060370422077742,00.html?mod=home_whats_news_us

Comment: fascinating that this was released by the feds Friday evening,
eh? That time, as we all know, is used when you want a story to be
buried ...
