The California Supreme Court has potentially added another month to the ongoing saga between two local water companies and the customers they both want to serve.
In a ruling released Monday, the court extended until Aug. 24 the time it has to decide whether it will hear the appeal of Golden State Water Company vs. Casitas Municipal Water District (Case No. S226622).
Golden State Water Company (GSWC) attorneys filed a petition for review May 26 shortly after a three-judge panel from Division Six of the Second Appellate District Court of Appeals denied GSWC’s request to have its appeal reheard locally.
