Melissa Lorber & Amy Prueger part of “All-Women Slate of Appellate Advocates” arguing Winter Storm Uri case
Enoch Kever Members Melissa Lorber and Amy Prueger made headlines this week as they (along with Member Bill Moore) represented Vistra Corp. subsidiary Luminant Energy in its dispute with the Public Utility Commission of Texas in front of the Texas Third Court of Appeals. The case centers around rules that the PUC adopted during Winter Storm Uri that resulted in $9,000/megawatt-hour electricity prices on top of rolling blackouts and freezing temperatures that beset most of the state of Texas for almost a week in February 2021.
The Texas Lawbook’s Mark Curriden stated, “Beyond the billions of dollars at stake in this litigation, the case also features some of the highest profile women lawyers practicing in Texas”.
