Attorneys in the Fresno PG&E pipeline explosion case are trying to stop testing on a 20-foot section of pipeline. That testing was scheduled for Monday then postponed to May 11 by the California Public Utilities Commission after complaints from the plaintiffs' lawyers.

They want access to the testing, without restrictions on reporting the findings to the public. They've now filed for a restraining order to stop PG&E and the CPUC from doing the testing without their presence.

PG&E says the explosion was caused by a county employee on a front loader digging at the Fresno peace officers range without calling 811. Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims denies there was any digging going on at the site. The county employee is unable to speak, according to an attorney for his family.
