On October 26, FERC filed an opposition to City Power’s motion for discovery under Rule 56(d) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. According to FERC, City Power has failed to provide any persuasive reason for needing discovery. In particular, FERC claims that City Power does not need discovery about the legitimate purposes of virtual trading in PJM, evidence of intent, or City Power’s allegedly untruthful statements about instant messages. According to FERC, City Power already has much of the requested information. Thus, FERC requests that the court deny City Power’s motion for discovery and grant FERC’s motion for summary judgment.
