The decision, reached late Friday and keep reading Monday by Mulnomah County Circuit Court Judge Steffan Alexander, according to protection by Courtroom View Network, consisted of about $67.5 million in noneconomic damages versus PacifiCorp, which runs Pacific Power and becomes part of Berkshire Hathaway Energy.
